DakhaBrakha combines traditional folk and punk, drawing inspiration from their Ukrainian homeland with a global sensibility.

Melodies from the ancient past collide with future sounds. They like to describe their style as “ethno-chaos.”

At CKUA, we were treated to a visit from touring dignitaries DakhaBrakha while they were on tour. It was the full four-piece band in all their full, distinctive instrumentation, in head-to-toe regalia and in all their glory.

For this episode of Hidden Track Sessions, the band set up in CKUA’s Edmonton performance space and shared a scorching set of three epic songs, as well as a very rare English language interview.

Host: Grant Stovel | Producer: Scott Zielsdorf | Sound mixing: Brendan Cross | Music: Doug Hoyer
