With their matching red-and-black outfits and tall wool hats, DakhaBrakha hypnotized the crowds at Pickathon last year with bewitching sets centered around the chants of Olena Tsybulska, Iryna Kovalenko, and Nina Harenetska. Though they’ve got roots in Ukranian folk, DakhaBrakha draws from a hodge-podge of styles that’s anchored by warbling melodies and percussive elements like goblet drum and table, along with the dissonant sounds of didgeridoo and cajón. The group’s avant-garde aesthetic and self-described “ethno-chaos” sound have attracted curious audiences the world over, and this stop at the Crystal Ballroom is sure to be a spectacle of otherworldly proportions. Part of the 2019 Soul'd Out Music Festival.
