Iryna Muha is a singer /songwriter; multi-instrumentalist and a founder of Muha band. Iryna grew up in Vinnitsa, Ukraine; she picked up guitar at 15 whilst living in Darkhan, Mongolia. Iryna’s early music influences were her father’s accordion playing and her mother’s singing at home. The traditional ‘table songs’ that are sang around the table at social gatherings have given the roots to Iryna’s current work.
With the interest in Eastern European folklore, as well as wider world music traditions Iryna explores instruments from hurdy-gurdy to berimbau, from jew’s harp to harmonica. Iryna is a keen collaborator and beleives that music is our common language across the nations and borders. With her band Iryna worked with such artists as Mayur Narvekar (India), Aref Durvesh (India), Keith Waithe ( Guyana), Constant Bushinsky ( Ukraine) and others.
