Beloved Festival longtime favorite DakhaBrakha is a world music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Visually stunning, dissonant, harmonious, and riotous "ethno chaos" band DakhaBrakha create a world of unexpected new music.
The name "DakhaBrakha" means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language. 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.

DakhaBrakha - Vynnaya Ya
DakhaBrakha's live performances are immersive, moving, and always visually stunning.
DakhaBrakha was created in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art "DAKH." Theatre work has left its mark on the band performances and is reflected in the striking visuals of the band's presentation.
DakhaBrakha, a group in which every member sings, consists of Iryna Kovalenko on piano and percussion; Olena Tsybulska on drum set; Nina Garenetska on cello; and Marko Halanevych on accordion, concertina, cajon and drymba (jaw harp). Their music brings a modern interpretation of ancient melodies to a new generation.
As activists, DakhaBrakha continue touring to raise awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine where war is ongoing.
