Dakh Daughters are legendary. The seven actresses and musicians create life-affirming performances about love, freedom and beauty. Dakh Daughters create the atmosphere of a French cabaret, where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson and Kurt Cobain connects with Chopin. Armed with a wild array of instruments, Dakh Daughters present a fascinating mix of folk, punk, jazz, classical music and traditional Ukrainian songs that defies all labels.
Aesthetically, the ladies can be linked to The Tiger Lillies, serving a similar morbid charm inspired by classic film noir and silent films of the 1920s.
The political content of their concerts is more than mere show: during the Maidan Revolution in 2014, Dakh Daughters were at the forefront of the protests, performing on the barricades. Their song “Roses/Donbass” became an anthem for the movement and a viral YouTube video.
