New Ukranian Music
Back by popular demand!
“Ethnic chaos” band DakhaBrakha is a world-music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine.
Rooted in traditional Ukrainian folk music, the band then added Indian, Arabic, African, Russian, and Australian traditional instrumentation and rhythms into their repertoire, creating a language of unexpected and inspiring new music.
The interplay of the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range and trans-national instrumentation results in a unique sound that is intimate then riotous, and always truly unforgettable.
“That mesh of ancient and contemporary is DakhaBrakha’s mission. DakhaBrakha — which means give-take in old Ukrainian — has researched rural folk songs across Ukraine, then reshaped them: first as the house band for a theater company in Kiev, and now on the international circuit”—NY Times.
