Part of Ukraine: The Edge of Freedom

Balaklava Blues is an activist-driven, genre-bending group mixing traditional folk music and transnational EDM with the echoes of revolution and war. A timely Philadelphia debut performance, this full-blown multimedia techno concert aims to build empathy and understanding when we need it most, spotlighting Ukrainian experiences and music with universal themes of identity, displacement, oppression and trauma. “Gorgeously sung and passionately played,” Balaklava Blues is “an evocation of human solidarity.” (The Guardian)
