Ukraine's DakhaBrakha performs its original song "Vesna" at the SFJAZZ Center on April 27, 2022.
As an expression of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, SFJAZZ broadcasted a special free live broadcast of DakhaBrakha's sold-out concert from the SFJAZZ Center. To date, we've raised over $75,000 to the "DakhaBrakha Fund", where 100% of the proceeds go directly to the band, to be reallocated to organizations aiding civilians in Ukraine.

A sonic feast as well as a visual spectacle, Kyiv’s DakhaBrakha weaves ancient Ukrainian folk melodies into a subversive musical tapestry that embraces indie rock, pop, hip hop, the avant-garde, and traditional instrumentation from around the world. For more than a decade, DakhaBrakha has taken on the mission of Ukraine cultural ambassador, celebrating national pride in uncertain times through the limitless power of music.
