About DakhaBrakha

Hailing from Kyiv, Ukraine, DakhaBrakha aims to reflect the fundamental elements of sound, soul, and “ethno-chaos” to create a world of new music. They weave ancient Ukrainian melodies with indie rock, pop, hip-hop and the avant-garde using traditional instruments from around the world.

The name DakhaBrakha means “give/take” in old Ukrainian, and aims to reflect the group’s philosophy. The folk-punk quartet was heralded by Rolling Stone as the “Best Breakout” of 2014’s Bonnaroo festival. 

Projected backdrops for the group’s show include videos of Ukraine, and commentary from the stage address their country’s current state.
