Gogol Bordello Performs "Malandrino," "My Companjera," "The Other Side of the Rainbow," & "I Just Realized"
An ensemble lead by a fellow Gypsy quadroon, who in the interview says, "The more you tour the world the more you realize that everybody's grandmother is from Romania." Mine, too, but the family name I proudly bear goes back to at least XVIIIth Century America.
I have mixed reviews about these guys. Sure, Gypsy punk is a lot of fun, but is it not just another manifestation of a globalized, deracinated anti-culture?
