Sounds of the Dolomites: Dakhabrakha
High altitude concerts in Val di Fassa with the best interpreters of the music
Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea is simple and at the same time fascinating: to combine the passion for music and the mountains, art and the environment, in a concert programme celebrating freedom and nature. Participants set off from the valley floor and head for clearings and hollows near the mountain refuges, natural theatres in which the music is performed in complete harmony with the surroundings. The festival features internationally renowned artists who, instruments on their shoulders, display their shared regard for the environment by joining the public in walking to the concert venues, on what is both an art and a nature trail. It’s the outcome of the cooperation between Trentino Marketing and the Val di Fassa Tourist Board.
Sounds of the Dolomites: Dakhabrakha. Val San Nicolò - Locality "Jonta" (Pozza di Fassa), at 12.00 p.m.
Programme: world music. For some people Ukraine is the gateway of Europe, and maybe this is the right image to understand the music of this highly original quartet. They love to call it ethno-chaos, but what Ukrainians Dakhabrakha are unleashing is anything but an incoherent set. It is instead a happy and fruitful encounter between ancient and contemporary, between timeless sounds and the new sound horizons that we can explore digitally. So, popular music of the largely unknown East is presented to a Western audience in a new, revolutionary form. A different way to look at one’s own roots and give them life without betraying them.
