You hate to use the dry and generic term “world music” to attempt to describe the strange and fantastic sounds stirred up by DakhaBrakha. The Ukrainian quartet prefer to call what they do “ethno-chaos.” Singer-accordionist Marko Halanevych and a trio of women vocalists adorned in black conical headdresses and colorful, arty long skirts — cellist Nina Harenetska, percussionist Olena Tsybulska and pianist/multi-instrumentalist Iryna Kovalenko — exhale a rhythmic patter of birdsong and febrile melodies. Their music might seem merely quirky at first, but you can’t help being swept away by the mesmerizing swirl of rapid-fire vocals and traditional instrumentation that — in DakhaBrakha’s deft hands — sounds anything but traditional.
