До 100-ї річниці інтернування українців в Канаді (1914-1920) по всій Канаді відбудеття відкриття пам'ятних дошок *22 серпня 2014 року о 11 год ранку*.

Please join us on *Friday, August 22*, when we will be unveiling a plaque at the *Ukrainian Orthodox Cultural Centre, 13512 – 108 Avenue, Surrey, at 11:00 am*. Following the unveiling, we will be screening "Freedom Had a Price," the National Film Board documentary on the internment.

We invite you to attend this event and honour the memory of all of the internees – men, women and children – who were branded as "enemy aliens," forced to do heavy labour for the profit of their jailers, disenfranchized, and subjected to other state-sanctioned sanctions, not because of any wrong they had done but only because of who they were, where they had come from.

DakhaBrakha is a quartet from Kiev whose sound is at once mesmerizing and mystical, melding soulful Ukrainian folk with the jazz and trance sounds that typify World Music. Aptly named, "DakhaBrakha" means "give/take" in the Ukrainian. Mixing the fundamental structure of folk music with free-form improvisation, the Kiev, Ukrainian "ethno-chaos" band DakhaBrakha creates a mesmerizing world of unexpected and engaging new music.
On stage, Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation melds with the quartet's astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range to create a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture. www.dakhabrakha.com.ua
