DakhaBrakha is a quartet from Kiev, Ukraine, that reshapes ancient and contemporary Ukrainian music. The band also adds rhythms of the surrounding world into their music - like accompaniments by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation - which create their bright, unique and unforgettable sound. Ceated in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art “DAKH” by the avant-garde theatre director – Vladyslav Troitskyi, the theatre work left its mark on the band’s performances and their shows have never been staged without scenic effects. Wth one foot in the urban avant-garde and the other in Ukrainian village culture, the group’s self-proclaimed “ethno-chaos” is a refreshingly novel vision of Eastern European roots music. Standing room only.
