DakhaBrakha
Start Date: 11/13/2014Start Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description:
Presented by NCSU Center Stage.

They've been called “subversive Ukrainian punk-folk.”

So far in 2014, DakhaBrakha has performed over 60 concerts in major cities around the world. They've been a bit hit at multiple 2014 festivals, including Bonnaroo, WOMAD, and New York’s GlobalFest.

This quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a transnational sound rooted in Ukrainian culture, accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation.

They call themselves an “ethno-chaos” band, creating a world of unexpected new music, combining drums, accordions, cello, didjeridoo, and stunning, complex vocals into a breathtaking sound steeped in Ukrainian roots music, yet refreshingly modern. And gorgeous.

Pre-show discussion with guitarist Alex Gorodezky, 7 PM, Room 3285, Talley Student Union. 

"The group mixes everything from punk-pop to traditional Ukrainian songs in cool yet beguiling textures, often with the close harmonies usually associated with Balkan music. But it's really the live shows that take DakhaBrakha beyond mere curiosity to utter brilliance.” – NPR

“The Ukraine’s DahkaBrakha turn the dissonant, ethereal drones of Eastern European folk music into a Björkian drum-punk spectacle.” – Rolling Stone
