Translating to "give/take" in old Ukrainian, the quartet embraces the roots of Ukrainian folk music, incorporating Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation to create a unique world music sound. The group includes Marko Halanevych (vocals, darbuka, tabla, accordion), Iryna Kovalenko (vocals, djembe, bass drums, accordion, percussion, bugay, zgaleyka, piano), Olena Tsybulska (vocals, bass drums, percussion, garmoshka), and Nina Garenetska (vocals, cello, bass drum).
