DakhaBrakha is a quartet from Kiev whose sound is at once mesmerizing and mystical, melding soulful Ukrainian folk with the jazz and trance sounds that typify World Music. Aptly named, "DakhaBrakha" means "give/take" in Ukrainian. Mixing the fundamental structure of folk music with free-form improvisation, the Kiev, Ukrainian "ethno-chaos" band DakhaBrakha creates a mesmerizing world of unexpected and engaging new music. On stage, Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation melds with the quartet's astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range to create a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.
