About Gogol Bordello
Founded in 1999, Gogol Bordello took their style from Eastern European punk bands, setting it firmly in the reality of alternative New York City rock and gypsy folk music. The band is headed by the charismatic Eugene Hütz, an immigrant and American of Ukrainian descent. The band members are also immigrants from other countries, including Russia, Ethiopia and Ecuador. The band very often gives concerts all over the world, which also reflects the spirit of the music it performs.
