Dakhabrakha

April 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$32 - $36

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 dramatic singers of DakhaBrakha accompany themselves on cello, accordion, and percussion, with Indian, Arabic, African, Russian, and Australian traditional instrumentation. Their astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound, with an overall effect that is simply entrancing.

“…everything from punk-pop to traditional Ukrainian songs in cool yet beguiling textures…” – National Public Radio.

“You may never again get a chance to see anything like the irresistible, wonderful sublime genius of DakhaBrakha.” – Live Taos
