Quite possibly the only hip hop orchestra in existence, Dakah is also likely the largest. As best I can tell, Dakah is all about full employment, as there are more than a staggering 30 members of the group, from 8 MC's on the mics to the 7 members of the brass section, to 5 woodwind members, to 5 folks on stringed instruments (yes, including a sitar), and 8 percussionists - including 2 DJs and a dedicated jaw harpist. I could understand an intermittent jaw harpist who also, say, breathed fire in his spare time - but a full time jaw harpist? Apparently, yes, AND he even did a lovely duet with the sitar player to open one of the songs. Anyhow, these cats put on one heck of a show that got the whole club jumping (quite literally) every time I've managed to catch them. That was enough for me to put Richard's Moneyback Guarantee on their show - if you go see them and don't love the music, I'll buy your ticket. I love bets I can't lose.
