Hailing from Kyiv, Ukraine, the quartet creates a world of unexpected new music rooted in Ukrainian folk music, laced with Indian, Arabic and African traditional instrumentation and paired with the astonishingly powerful vocal range of its members.
The eclectic style of DakhaBrakha, which means "give/take" in the old Ukrainian language, is situated at the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theater; their musical spectrum is at first intimate then riotous, plumbing the depths of contemporary roots and rhythms.
