Ukrainian «ethnic chaos» band

PVDFest June 8, 2019, 7:30-9 PM
The City Stage Sponsored by Waste Management
25 Dorrance St. Downtown Providence*

DakhaBrakha is a world-music quartet from Kyiv, Ukraine. Reflecting fundamental elements of sound and soul, the band creates a world of unexpected new music at the crossroads of Ukrainian folklore and theatre.

Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a transnational sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. Their musical spectrum is intimate, then riotous, plumbing the depths of contemporary roots and rhythms to inspire cultural and artistic liberation in festival audiences around the world.

In addition to performing an unmatchable transnational concert experience, DakhaBrakha will color our PVDFest purple with a comedic Borcht-making demonstration and tasting! Saturday, June 8, 1-1:45 PM at Kennedy Plaza behind the SummerHouse.
