Price £15

The World music quartet from Kiev bring their unforgettable and refreshingly novel Ukrainian folk melodies and rhythms to Oval Space.

This award-winning quartet of multi-instrumentalist singers, experiment with Ukrainian folk melodies and rhythms, mixing beautiful original material with minimalism. Founded by former underground theatre performers, DakhaBrakha possesses an incredible stage presence that transcends its eclectic repertoire and instrumentation – which includes spacious vocals, accordion, bass drum, mouth harp and cello. The band gradually layers a leisurely crawl with a bow on the cello, the tapping rhythms of nomadic tribes, the lyricism of the accordion, and their beautiful melodies in polyphonic rural voices to create a large, ethno-jazz sound of absolute hypnotic persuasion.
