DakhaBrakha is an “ethno-chaos” quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Their name means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language, and that’s what their brand of “ethno-chaos” is all about. They break down styles, reterritorializing foreign timbres into their own folk theater vernacular, taking from the old and giving something new, creating a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. They are experimental cartographers remixing the map of world music, exploring shared resonances, embodying an experimental, playful approach that cuts across traditional boundaries.
