One of the most famous and appreciated bands in Ukraine, DakhaBrakha (in the old Ukrainian "give / take"), returns to the Transilvania International Film Festival (June 17 - 26, 2022) for an extraordinary concert, part of the TIFF For Ukraine initiative. Founded in 2004 in Kyiv by avant-garde theater director Vladislav Troitsky, DakhaBrakha defines its style as "ethnic chaos". The essence of their music comes from Ukrainian folklore, to which are added jazz, trance, rhythms and instruments from completely different cultures - from Indian, to Arab and African. The result is a fascinating and original show, which can be watched in Cluj-Napoca on June 23, 2022, at Iulius Parc Open Air.
In recent months, DakhaBrakha is on an international tour, promoting Ukrainian music and sending messages of peace: “It was hard to leave our country, but we are here because we are artists. It is very important for us to feel support and solidarity with Ukraine, to make our music and traditions known in the world during these times of war. " The DakhaBrakha members are Marko Halanevych, Iryna Kovalenko, Olena Tsybulska and Nina Garenetska.
