Description

This hot Ukrainian folk-punk quartet, whose name means "give-take" in old Slavonic, stirs up a mesmerizing sound that melds traditional Ukrainian folk music, African grooves, Eastern colors, and a contemporary sensibility the band calls "ethno-chaos." The hit of last year's globalFEST, the dramatic singers in DakhaBrakha accompany themselves on cello, accordion, percussion, and other instruments, mixing "everything from punk-pop to traditional Ukrainian songs in cool yet beguiling textures," raved National Public Radio.
