DakhaBrakha – ethno-chaos group in brief The world of unexpected, intimate and new music.
Ethnos + chaos = the combination of two fundamental substances, create the world of music in a variety of native melodies, rythmos. The name is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time.
DakhaBrakha means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language.
The meaning of “giving” is obvious – to give music, joy, celebration, the whole spectrum of emotions, feelings and reflections that fresh music and singing bring with itself.
But where “to take” from? The energy can be taken not only from a native “source” but from anywhere…
Modern ethnic music needs a sort of reconstruction and in a way it means to search roots, to move back in time. But if one belongs to the urban culture and has no initial experience of the traditional life, how can he find these roots? This “authentic music” will turn out to be artificial because it is an imitation only.
Ukrainians still have no developed “urban folk” music, so called “world music”.
It depends on specific social and cultural development.
So, now the vital decision is to make a step forward with the help of inner inspiration and fantasy: you hear an impulse and then create a new world based on deep cultural roots rather than the superficial forms of the culture.
This is what the Ukrainian song is — vanguard and sacred at the same time. In Ukrainian authentic “symphony” one can hear the European and Oriental motives or the Christian and Moslem ones.

Thus, the sound combines eastern-European perception with Asian and African rhythms.

Lyrics:
Ой на Івана, на Купайла
Покупалася ластовочка

На Йвана, Купайла

Ой купалася сушилася
Чого дівчина журилася

На Йвана, Купайла

Ой ти дівчино, ой ти, ой ти
Коли до тебе в свати прийти

На Йвана, Купайла

Прийди до мене й увечері,
Щоб воріженьки не бачили

На Йвана, Купайла

Понад садом, садом три дорожки радом
Ой ходив козак до дівчини позно

Не ходи, козаче, не ходи до мене,
Бо буде неслава на тебе й на мене

Бо буде неслава на тебе й на мене
Ой ще й на твого коня вороного

Ой ще на твого коня вороного
Ой ще й на тебе хлопця молодого

А брат сестру да за стол веде, да каліно-маліно
А брат сестру да наючає, да ягідонько мо(я)

Сестро ж моя, да будь розумна, да каліно-маліно
Май свекорка та за батенька, да ягідонько мо(я)

Май свекорка да за батенька, да каліно-маліно
А свекруху да за матьонку, да ягідонько мо(я)
