Their instrumentation includes clarinet, violin, darbuka, guitars and drums, with two outstanding lead vocalists Kasia Kazimierska and Michael Casey Kasprzak.

MUHA band:

‘MUHA are an intriguing example of the results that arise from meetings of musical minds across porous national borders.’ Songlines

Nottingham’s own MUHA offers a new tradition in contemporary Eastern European music, influenced by the multicultural society in the UK, the band is a brilliant live act. Entertaining with their musicianship through a sound stemming from eastern roots and engaging audiences through a variety of languages and catchy grooves. Combining the melodic beauty of Eastern European folklore, North Indian Kathak rhythms, Cuban beats and original lyrics they mesmerise with a musical feast rooted in the Slavonic tradition but cultured from the world.
