DakhaBrakha – is world-music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, Ukrainian «ethnic chaos» band DakhaBrakha, create a world of unexpected new music.

The name DakhaBrakha is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time. It means «give/take» in the old Ukrainian language.

DakhaBrakha was created in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art «DAKH» by the avant-garde theatre director – Vladyslav Troitskyi. Theatre work has left its mark on the band performances – their shows have never been staged without the scenic effects.

Having experimented with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, thus creating bright, unique and unforgettable image of DakhaBrakha. It will help to open up the potential of Ukrainian melodies and to bring it to the hearts and consciousness of the younger generation in Ukraine and the rest of the world as well.

Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.

At the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre their musical spectrum is intimate then riotous, plumbing the depths of contemporary roots and rhythms, inspiring «cultural and artistic liberation».

DakhaBrakha has played concerts and performances and has taken part in numerous international festivals in Ukraine, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Austria, Slovenia, Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Rumunia, Italy, Spaine, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norvegia, Belarus, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Chine, Australia, USA, Canada, Columbia, New Zealand, Brazil.

    They blew me away at Pickathon last year!! There had a 10 min interlude where they started making magical forest noises complete with birds chirping, a hooting owl, chiming bells, and sweeping cello! Incredible, simply incredible. Round 2 please. : )

    I LOVE DakhaBrakha! I was able to see them at the Pickathon festival last year and they blew my mind!! I am a Pickathon volunteer and had to miss Yemen Blues’ set so it would mean so much to be able to see them both on the same night!!! I really hope I win this so I can go and dance to their music again :)

      I’m visiting Portland with my girlfriend for a few days and looking for cool things to do and I figure why not. I’m sure it would be great!

    I once came upon a traveling group of Avante Garde Ukranian performance by chance on the streets of Busan, South Korea. It would feel like I’d come round full circle (although more intentional) to be able to see them here in Portland!

    I came upon a group of Avante Garde Ukranian performers once on the streets of Busan, South Korea. To see them here in Portland would feel like I’ve made a full hemispheric circle and feed my nostalgia for the last city I called home!
