DAKHABRAKHA is world-music, “ethno chaos” performance ensemble, whose work exists at the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre. Their name means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language. The group was created in 2004 by the avant-garde theatre director, Vladyslav Troitsky, and theatre work has left an endelible mark on the band and their performances. DAKHABRAKHA inbues traditional Ukrainian folk melodies with Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, which, along with their astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range, creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.
