Here is the description for this video:
For the third year, Tiny Desk concerts team up with globalFEST for a thrilling online music festival — Tiny Desk meets globalFEST.
Bob Boilen | January 27, 2023
Hosted by Angélique Kidjo, the series echoes globalFEST’s live flagship event in spirit but is centered in the framework of the Tiny Desk concert series.
This collaboration presents exclusive video performances from nine artists filmed in their respective homelands, on the road and in exile all over the world.
There will be three nights of concerts, each featuring three bands, on consecutive nights beginning Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
The globalFEST team wrote the following biographical information about each performer.
Dakh Daughters, Ukraine
Dakh Daughters create an atmosphere of a French saloon, where Mireille Mathieu befriends Marilyn Manson.
On occasion, armed with a full set of strings, keyboards and percussion, the women shake the audience with a roar in the manner of the group Laibach, but can swiftly exchange anger for kindness, turning into fun-loving, Hollywood beauties of the 1950s who dream of tropical vacations in the Caribbean.

This was a surprise, I can imagine them making music for the TV show Vikings and upcoming Dune movies & TV shows, et cetera.
At times, their vocals are like witches casting a spell and / or ancient war music to prepare warriors before combat or something, which is pretty cool & unique.
I liked all three songs in this set.
