“The most unexpectedly successful, emotional performance... matched edgy, eerie harmony vocals with concertina, cello and percussion work, in an exhilarating set that seemed to sum up their country’s chaos and hope.” The Guardian (U.K.)

A sonic feast and visual spectacle, Kyiv’s DakhaBrakha weaves Ukrainian folk melodies into a subversive musical tapestry that embraces indie rock, pop, hip hop and innovative and traditional instrumentation from around the world. Through its roots in experimental theater and six increasingly accomplished albums, the folk-punk quartet has honed its haunting musical approach, with unearthly vocal harmonies and thunderous percussion augmented by floating cello and accordion sonorities. With a name that translates as “give/take” in Old Slavonic, DakhaBrakha’s self-proclaimed “ethno-chaos” music has one foot in the urban avant-garde and the other in ancient Eastern European village culture.
