All net proceeds from this concert will be donated to Come Back Alive, a Ukrainian relief fund selected by DakhaBrakha.
A sonic feast as well as a visual spectacle, Kyiv’s DakhaBrakha weaves ancient Ukrainian folk melodies into a subversive musical tapestry that embraces indie rock, pop, hip hop, the avant-garde, and traditional instrumentation from around the world. With a name (ДахаБраха) that translates as “give/take” in Ukrainian, the quartet began over a decade ago as the musical component of avant-garde stage performances at the DAKH Theater in Kyiv, cementing the group’s arresting visual image and signature theatrics. Having experimented widely with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, thus creating the bright, unique and unforgettable stamp of DakhaBrakha, bringing Ukrainian folk melodies to the hearts and consciousness of the younger generation in Ukraine, and the rest of the world as well.
