“The group mixes everything from punk-pop to traditional Ukrainian songs in cool yet beguiling textures, often with the close harmonies usually associated with Balkan music. But it’s really the live shows that take DakhaBrakha beyond mere curiosity to utter brilliance.” — NPR

DakhaBrakha is world music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, the Ukrainian “ethno-chaos” band DakhaBrakha create a world of unexpected new music. The name DakhaBrakha means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language, reflecting their eclectic sound. Having experimented with Ukrainian folk music, the band added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music to create their own unique and original style. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, and Russian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound grounded in Ukrainian culture. Firmly rooted at the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre, DakhaBrakha’s musical spectrum is both intimate and riotous, plumbing the depths of traditional and contemporary textures and rhythms, inspiring “cultural and artistic liberation.”
