Formed in Kyiv in 2004, Ukrainian quartet DakhaBrakha make ‘ethno chaos’ music – contemporary, cosmopolitan and intimate, with the soul of Ukrainian folk. The group’s astonishing vocal range is accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African and Ukrainian traditional instruments, that create a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. These instruments include tabla, djembe, accordion, zgaleyka and didgeridoo. Formed in 2004 by avant-garde theatre director, Vladyslav Troitskyi, the group’s shows have a strong visual and theatrical element with beautifully crafted costumes and a charismatic stage presence. Since their first appearance at WOMADelaide 2011, they have played more than 300 concerts and taken part in many major international festivals. While experimenting with the instruments and rhythms of other cultures, DakhaBrakha never loses site of its bigger mission: To make the world aware of the new country but ancient nation that is Ukraine.
