Saturday, April 4, 9 p.m. $30

UKRAINIAN band DakhaBrakha was founded by underground theater performers in Kiev, and boy, does it show when they hit the stage. Blending traditional Ukranian songs with punk-pop, Balkan influences, the result is an electrifyingly haunting performance: your eyes and ears will hardly know where to focus with such excitement across the stage.

Clad in coordinating tall, fuzzy black hats and white gowns, the band employs of accordions, bass drums, cello, and mouth harp, joining in percussive chanting and close harmonies that will both mesmerize and entrance. With their melting pot of styles, we can’t think of a better closer to Savannah Music Festival.

Trust us: you’ve never seen anything like this before.
