At its core, Gogol Bordello is a band that mixes Eastern European musical influences with modern rock and punk sensibilities to create a style of music that has been deemed Gypsy Punk. Formed in 1999 in the Lower East Side of New York City by a group of immigrants, the band initially played purist gypsy music at Russian weddings. After dropping a single with more modern western influences to much acclaim, Gogol Bordello established itself as a band unafraid to do its own thing. Entertaining audiences through high energy shows with theatrical elements haphazardly thrown in, that typically feature the band playing an unusual assortment of instruments and dancing like maniacs, Gogol Bordello is a live performance not to be missed.
