Since 2008 DAGADANA have been doing their great job at blending elements of Polish and Ukrainian culture with jazz, electronica, contemporary and world music. They cross the boundaries between nations and erase the barrier between the audience and the stage, proving that honesty in music is a guarantee of an amazing, mystical adventure and a rich exchange between people. At the same time, DAGADANA remain faithful ambassadors of Slavic culture.
The band has performed at such prominent festivals as Glastonbury (UK), Virada Cultural (Brazil), Shanghai World Music (China), Desert People Festival (Morocco), Open’er or Woodstock (Poland).

DAGADANA have found their inspiration in numerous sources: modern electronic, jazz, contemporary music, roots music found amongst their families and friends, at ethnic music workshops, as well as on the bookshelves of their friends and families.

From the very beginning, their philosophy has been based on meeting and exchanging music and art experiences from all over the world while being the ambassadors of Polish and Ukrainian cultures. Thanks to that, you can experience their cooperation on records, or enjoy it at the concerts with local musicians in different parts of the world.
One of these meetings has lead to the recording of the new album entitled “Meridian 68”. Folk songs from Poland and Ukraine constitute the very heart of the album. The Eastern influence is a result of an encounter with extraordinary musicians from North Lab band – Hassibagen from Inner Mongolia and Aiys Song from China – during DAGADANA’s visit to Beijing. Even though musicians didn’t know each other’s languages, they communicated easily through music.
DAGADANA is a group of outstanding musicians from Poland and Ukraine who have taken part in many important music projects home and abroad: Daga Gregorowicz, Dana Vynnytska, Mikołaj Pospieszalski and Bartosz Mikołaj Nazaruk.

Prior to the release of its first album, DAGADANA had been invited to one of the biggest musical festivals in Europe – Open’er Festival.

Their debut record “Maleńka” has won massive acclaim among the media and cultural opinion- makers, and was championed by Polish Radio 3. DAGADANA won the Fryderyk 2011 Award in the World Music Album of the Year category and was nominated for the Phonographic Debut of the Year. Their second album “Dlaczego nie” was nominated for the Fryderyk 2012 Award in the World Music category. The third record “List do Ciebie” (with poetry by Janusz Różewicz) was warmly praised in both musical and literary circles. The “Meridian 68” (2016) album hit #48 at the prestigious World Music Charts Europe and #14 at the Transglobal World Music Charts. Moreover, “Meridian 68” has been nominated for polish Grammy Award “Fryderyk 2016″ in “Roots Album of the Year” category. This album was also released by JARO Medien.

In January 2020 DAGADANA will release their 5th album with wishing songs from Poland and Ukraine. Here is the first single.
