Bumbershoot 2014: World-music acts

A roundup of the world-music acts at Bumbershoot 2014.

One thing you can count on during Bumbershoot: musical offerings from around the world. Don’t count on: the same old, same old. This year, one of the most interesting acts looks to be DakhaBrakha, a Ukrainian troupe that specializes in musical mashups across cultures and genres (you’ll see stringed instruments, sure, but also a lot of other music-making apparatus). The group members describe themselves as presenting “ethnic chaos” — if you watch one of their YouTube videos, you may agree. DakhaBrakha plays at 2:45 p.m. Monday, Sept. 1, at the Fisher Green Stage. Other internationally flavored acts on the Bumbershoot 2014 roster: Bomba Estereo, Mexican Institute of Sound, Polyrhythmics, Hoba Hoba Spirit and Kore Ionz. Full schedule: www.bumbershoot.org.
