DakhaBrakha

DakhaBrakha - ethno-chaos group in brief
The world of unexpected, intimate and new music.
Ethnos + chaos = the combination of two fundamental substances, create the world of music in a variety of native melodies, rythmos.
The name is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time. DakhaBrakha means "give/take" in the old Ukrainian language. The meaning of "giving" is obvious - to give music, joy, celebration, the whole spectrum of emotions, feelings and reflections that fresh music and singing bring with itself. But where "to take" from? The energy can be taken not only from a native "source" but from anywhere...
Modern ethnic music needs a sort of reconstruction and in a way it means to search roots, to move back in time. But if one belongs to the urban culture and has no initial experience of the traditional life, how can he find these roots?
This "authentic music" will turn out to be artificial because it is an imitation only. Ukrainians still have no developed "urban folk" music, so called "world music". It depends on specific social and cultural development. So, now the vital decision is to make a step forward with the help of inner inspiration and fantasy: you hear an impulse and then create a new world based on deep cultural roots rather than the superficial forms of the culture. This is what the Ukrainian song is vanguard and sacred at the same time. In Ukrainian authentic "symphony" one can hear the European and Oriental motives or the Christian and Moslem ones. Thus, the sound combines eastern-European perception with Asian and African rhythms.
DakhaBrakha was created in 2004 at the Kyiv Center of Contemporary Art "DAKH" by the avant-garde theatre director Vladyslav Troitskiy. Theatre work has left its mark on the band performances their shows have never been staged without the scenic effects.
Having experimented with Ukrainian folk music, the band has added rhythms of the surrounding world into their music, thus creating bright, unique and unforgettable image of DakhaBrakha.
Ukrainian folk music and songs will surely benefit from the overtones of another music, cultures and styles. It will help to 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.
"DakhaBrakha" singers: Nina Garenetska, Iryna Kovalenko, Olena Tsibulska and Marko Halanevych.
Instruments: Indian tablas, marakas, cello,accordion,dijeridu, bongo, darbuka, djembe, buddhistic gong, Carpathian bukhaloetc...

Albums:

DakhaBrakha. Na mezhi. /digi-pack/. (On the Verge)


..here, "On the Verge" the force of water is revealed very perceptibly, magic of quite a different level appears, intended for other purposes. That is, the first works were just to burn everything old, not able to live on to clear the space. The new work must feed the new, fresh relying on those roots that did not subdue to the action of fire. That verge from which creation of the new myth..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Light. /digi-pack/.


...the content of the album in the style aspect is ambiguous but, definitely, interesting. This time to their branded ethno-chaos they have added quite a bit of very diverse elements: here you have soul, and D'n'B, and hip-hop, and art-rock, and almost jazz decorations. It appears cool.

DakhaBrakha. Shlyakh. /premium, digi-pack/. (The Road)


This album was ready in the autumn of 2016 but the musicians were in doubt, as a result they literally re-created it from scratch (the sound producer was Yuryi Hustochka). And it turned out superb, literally. Fragile like the frosty crust on morning snow, thick and fragrant like masala an album of hope, an album of surprise. Steppe blues..
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Songs:

Perkalaba. Dido. /digi-pack/. (Grandpa)


..it seems that in the sense of music Perkalaba has returned to the wave it started from but in fact this is essentially different music played with more or less the same instruments. Such a trick so I advise you to listen very carefully. Maybe you will visit the Mystical Theater of Shadows on Perforated Cardboard...
