The theatrical cult phenomenon DakhaBrakha, a quartet of multi-instrumentalists from Kiev,
draws on Ukrainian folk melodies and rhythms. DakhaBrakha’s music is cutting-edge yet deeply imbued with tradition.
Three young women, clad in wedding dresses and tall Cossack-style hats, sing in soaring, vibrato-less voices while
accompanied by accordion, drums, and cello, as well as by the sole male instrumentalist, who also contributes a
high vocal lead. Visually striking and sonically mesmerizing.
