French channel ARTE will show the film about Ukrainian music band

ARTE: French channel ARTE will show a film about the Ukrainian women’s theatrical and musical group “Dakh Daughters”.

“Dakh Daughters” is a Ukrainian music and theater project started in 2012 in Kyiv. The band consists of seven women, who play on various instruments and sing in different languages and dialects. They often use texts by famous authors in their lyrics (e.g. Taras Shevchenko, William Shakespeare, Lesya Ukrainka).

“Dakh Daughters” participants are members of different projects such as DakhaBrakha and Perkalaba. The band’s name derives from the Dakh theater which is associated with the project.

“Dakh Daughters” has performed in various Ukrainian cities, as well as outside of the country (in Poland, France, Russia, and Brazil).

The film will be on until the end of July on Arte
