The Glasshouse






Part of Folk


Theatrical. Vivid. Music without boundaries.

DakhaBrakha is a quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, the Ukrainian “ethno chaos” band create a world of unexpected new music and their live shows have a strong visual element.

DakhaBrakha was created in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art “DAKH” by the avant-garde theatre director – Vladyslav Troitskyi – and given the name that means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language.

After experimenting with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, creating a bright, unique and unforgettable sound. They strive to unlock the potential of Ukrainian melodies and to bring them into the hearts of Ukraine’s young people along with the rest of the world.

Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, and Ukrainian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s powerful music creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. At the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre, their musical spectrum ranges from intimate to riotous, inspiring “cultural and artistic liberation”.
