12-15 April 2023, Budapest
Polish-Ukrainian bonding set to a catchy ethnobeat, adorned with the coolest traditional headdresses. Daga from Poland and Dana of Ukraine transform folk heritage with style and rapport; add jazz and electronica to the mix; and make the case for cultural kinship evident. Their busy tour calendar (featuring Paris, Lisbon, Glastonbury) is proof of their proposition on the current sound and connecting power of folk tradition. Mikołaj Pospieszalski (double bass, bass, violin) and Bartosz Mikołaj Nazaruk (drums, percussion) append the female duo to create a jazz and funk infused whole. Since the war in Ukraine broke out, Dagadana turned up the volume on their message of hope and unity. Experience their charismatic presence and danceable yet layered ethnobeat at Budapest Ritmo.
