DakhaBrakha

March 29 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| $ 32plus s/c - 92plus s/c

Presented by Caravan World Rhythms

Legendary Ethno-Chaos group from Kyiv

After selling out their last three concerts in Vancouver, DakhaBrakha returns with their spectacular musical and visual performance to the superb Massey Theatre, bringing their powerful message of resistance and solidarity for Ukraine.

“With their otherworldly singing and self-described ethno-chaos sounds, this Ukrainian quartet mesmerized for a magical 90 minutes, while adding messages of peace and solidarity. A truly remarkable experience.” — Star Tribune

DakhaBrakha is a world-music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, Ukrainian “ethnic chaos” band DakhaBrakha creates a world of unexpected new music. The name DakhaBrakha means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language.

DakhaBrakha was created in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art “DAKH” by the avant-garde theatre director — Vladyslav Troitskyi. Theatre work has left its mark on the band performances — their shows have never been staged without the scenic effects.

After experimenting with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, thus creating the bright, unique and unforgettable sound of DakhaBrakha. They strive to help open up the potential of Ukrainian melodies and to bring it to the hearts and consciousness of the younger generation in Ukraine and the rest of the world as well.

Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, and Ukrainian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. At the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre, their musical spectrum is at first intimate then riotous, plumbing the depths of contemporary roots and rhythms, inspiring “cultural and artistic liberation”.

Dakhabrakha is currently on tour to raise funds and solidarity for Ukraine.
