DakhaBrakha means “give/take” in old Ukrainian, and the band describes its sound as “Ethnos + chaos = the combination of two fundamental substances, create the world of music in a variety of native melodies, rhythms.” This group creates unique sounds in a way that’s extremely modern for what would usually be classified as world music. There’s a magical quality to DakhaBrakha’s music made by accordions, didgeridoo, cello and something called zgaleyka. “Kpyny” creates an expansive groove with accordion that’s punctuated by some great hand percussion and haunting vocals. “Vesnyanky” is a desolately somber song that evolves into a fantastic wall of vocals, drum and strings. Their latest release, Khmeleva Project, is an excursion through imaginative sounds, image-inducing textures and beautifully sung folk-tunes. (Gonzalez)
