Drones, beats, and towering black lamb's-wool hats all serve as a striking backdrop to the Ukrainian folk-punk quartet DakhaBrakha. With one foot in the urban avant-garde and the other rooted in Ukrainian village culture, the group's self-proclaimed "ethno-chaos" is a refreshingly novel vision of Eastern European roots music. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian, and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates an edgy global sound.
