DakhaBrakha: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

NPR Music hosted globalFEST on Tiny Desk this weekend. This showcase of Global music included a lot of great acts. My favorites were Japan's Minyo Crusaders, and this performance by Ukranian band DakhaBrakha.

Video Description:

This show marks DakhaBrakha's return to globalFEST and Tiny Desk. The Ukranian band's first globalFEST performance was in 2014, and their 2015 Tiny Desk concert remains a favorite. We've had them in our spaces, so it's a real treat to see them in theirs, the Dakh Theater in Kiev. Coming together, their performance maintains the energy and joy that define their music, bouncing off each other musically and emotionally. DakhaBrakha aims to keep Ukraine's musical and storytelling tradition alive by making it more accessible to a younger, international audience, a kind of self-proclaimed "ethno-chaos." They craft stunning sonic worlds for traditional songs, reinventing their heritage with a keen ear for contemporary resonances.

Love this band ! Please wander off topic more often 😊
Thanks for sharing! A friend cued me in to their work a year or two ago. There’s something quite powerful in their music which requires no justification. ;-)
Yea, I'm grateful for the new bands and sounds you've introduced me to here.
