The glory of ethnic music

On Sunday at the San Jose Jazz festival, my husband and I experienced a Ukranian group called Dakhabrakha. That was the undisputed highlight of the day! They call their genre “ethnos chaos” and played some powerful tribal rhythm music that included goblet drums, didgeridoos, accordeon, harmonica, flute, cello and a few other instruments I didn’t recognize. And the vocals were piercing and haunting even though we didn’t understand any of it. If you’re interested, check them out on Soundcloud: 🙂dakhabrakha
