MUHA- Eastern European Contemporary Folk
Stemming from eastern roots MUHA layers and mixes the sounds of different traditions, influenced by the multicultural society that they inhabit in the UK. The band is a great live act, entertaining with musicianship and engaging with audiences through a variety of languages and catchy grooves.
Combining the melodic beauty of Eastern European folklore, North Indian Kathak rhythms, Cuban beats, Western European influence and original lyrics from Hindi to old Russian and modern Ukrainian, they mesmerize with a musical feast rooted in the Slavonic tradition but cultured from the world.
MUHA’s musicians come from different walks of life and each one of them brings their own experience and expertise into this versatile band spreading out the new roots and branches of Eastern Europe to embrace all. Formed in 2004 when Ukrainian-born singer/songwriter Iryna Muha met Latvian rock legend Dmitry Fedotov. Together with Louise Clements and Nikki Mckenzie, MUHA offers a bewitching modern fusion of Slavonic-rooted music enhanced with rhythms, grooves and traditional folklore from all over the world.
The group’s 2010 debut album TARAS received critical acclaim and the band continues to fine-tune their unique musical offering through interesting collaborations with other world musicians. New album is expected in the spring 2014.
