Part of Ukraine: The Edge of Freedom

A riotous, sonic feast and visual spectacle, Kyiv’s DakhaBrakha makes its Penn Live Arts debut in a powerful celebration of the limitless power of music. The quartet calls its sound “ethno-chaos,” a moniker that perfectly describes the fusion of ancient Ukrainian folk melodies into a tapestry that embraces indie rock, pop, hip hop, the avant-garde and traditional instrumentation from the surrounding world. With live performances hailed as “utter brilliance” (NPR) and “a truly remarkable experience,” (Star Tribune) DakhaBrakha’s subversive musical synthesis is fresh, spirited and urgent, with a message of peace and solidarity in uncertain times.
