To whet your appetite for Daimohk’s forthcoming tour (see dates, venues, prices and booking information here) we thought we would put up some links to Daimohk elsewhere on the web.
First of all is Jos De Putter’s 2002 film ‘Dans Grozny Dans’. In Chechen with French subtitles.
‘Jos De Putter’s powerful documentary “Dans Grozny Dans”, follows Daimohk on their 2001 tour of Europe and their preparations among the devastation of Grozny. The film won Best Documentary at Chicago’s 2003 International Documentary Film Festival, and Best Film at the 2003 St Petersburg Film Festival.’
There is also a wonderful selection of highlights from the 2005 Tour from Videoreel on YouTube.
These are reviews from their 2004 tour.
