Global Music Lunchtime Concert Series Fall 2013: DhakaBrakha: Contemporary-Folk Quartet

DakhaBrakha is a group from Ukraine that plays the contemporary-folk music, or what they call “ethno-chaos.” Having experimented with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, inspiring cultural and musical liberation through unexpected combinations of Ukrainian melodies and global rhythms. The band’s bright and clear vocals are layered with traditional instrumentation from every corner of the globe, including Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian influences. Putting themselves at the intersection of Ukrainian folklore, transnational sounds, and contemporary theatre, DhakaBrakha constantly moves between intimate textures and riotous expression, shaping a truly thrilling musical experience. ** Interested in participating in a workshop with DakhaBrakha after the concert (2-3pm)?
