MUHA offer 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.

MUHA’s musicians come from different walks of life and each one of them combines their expertise to create a truly unique sound. The band formed in 2006 when singer/ songwriter Iryna Muha met guitarist Dmitry Fedotov. Together with Louise Clements on bass/kathak vocals and Nikki Mckenzie percussion, MUHA offers an enthralling fusion of Slavonic-rooted music enhanced with rhythms and global folklore narratives.

"Full of personal touches, quality work, unique and a great Beautiful sound" -www.worldmusicvideo.com

"Every track and tune explores the unknown bravely with such musicality and presence… Iryna’s voice commands attention and nostalgia with a sense of rhythm, mixing Punjabi and Russian – a superpower of expression!" - Skinder Hundal, Chief Executive of the New Art Exhange

"It’s so bonkers yet beautifully brilliant you simply cannot fault them" - Aoife Kiernanfrom, Musicreviewunsigned.com
