Dash Arts and Nest Collective are thrilled to present DakhaBrakha live in London in November.
"edgy, eerie harmony vocals with concertina, cello and percussion work, in an exhilarating set that seemed to sum up their country's chaos and hope." Robin Denselow - The Guardian
This award-winning quartet of multi-instrumentalist singers, experiment with Ukrainian folk melodies and rhythms, mixing beautiful original material with minimalism. Founded by former underground theatre performers, DakhaBrakha possesses an incredible stage presence that transcends its eclectic repertoire and instrumentation - which includes spacious vocals, accordion, bass drum, mouth harp and cello. The band gradually layers a leisurely crawl with a bow on the cello, the tapping rhythms of nomadic tribes, the lyricism of the accordion, and their beautiful melodies in polyphonic rural voices to create a large, ethno-jazz sound of absolute hypnotic persuasion.
"....Insistent song melodies, gathered partly from the band's trips to Ukraine's villages, developed and made rich, fierce, dark and wild by overlaying and criss-crossing them, over grinding, propulsive textures of drums, wild cello, wheezing accordion, reedy-squealing zhaleika and bagpipe, bubbling trombone, narrowing focus to heart-rending, impassioned solo vocals. " - fRoots Magazine.

Dakha Brakha were the stand-out stars of WOMAD when Dash Arts brought them in 2014, subsequently rocked Later with Jools Holland on the BBC in autumn 2015 and a sold-out Rich Mix and Glastonbury in June 2016.
Come and catch them for their only London appearance this year....
