Watch Making Tracks online: Episode 5 Kiev, Ukraine

Kiev, capital of the Ukraine, is where Nick D heads for this episode of Making Tracks. It's an interesting city, set beside a beautiful river, which the locals use as a focal point for boating, swimming, partying and much more. The Kiwi song covered this week is Concord Dawn's 'Morning Light'. The local band giving it a unique Ukrainian flavour is 'folk-chaos' group Dhaka Brakha. After setting them to task, Nick meets some amazing musicians who have lived through revolution, famine and occupation... and in some cases railed against it with their music. Thankfully, there's a lighter side to Ukrainian life too usually involving riverside parties, crazy folk bands, and a lot of vodka. The resulting cover version of 'Morning Light' is more than a little surprising, and we see Matty C from Concord Dawns reaction to hearing it.
