In a world where manufactured pop dominates the musical landscape, one Ukrainian band finds international success by singing their grandmothers’ folk songs.
DakhaBrakha: On the Road is a portrait of the band whose contribution to the popularization of Ukrainian culture is hard to overestimate. The four musicians pack venues and music festivals around the world with their modern interpretations of folk songs in synergy with blues and soul influences, giving new life to ancient sounds and weaving Ukrainian themes into the galaxy of ethnomusic. This is a story about unexpected twists of fate and events on the fifteen-year journey to world fame for DakhaBrakha’s musicians Marko Halanevych, Iryna Kovalenko, Olena Tsybulska and Nina Garenetska. The film also searches for an answer to the eternal question of creative people: "Am I on my way?"
