The troubadours are coming. The troubadours are here. Their word is a fire. Their sound is a spear. Get set for some genre-busting excitement! After forming on the Lower East Side of New York City in 1999, Gogol Bordello has been confronting audiences with acts of music, theatre, chaos and sorcery.
With their new album, Super Taranta! Gogol Bordello “is going to conquer the world,” boasts Eugene Hutz, Gogol bandleader and agent provocateur. “It’s more direct, more abstract, more focused, with more dark humour…its pure orgasmo hysteria.”
Gogol Bordello’s breathless, breakneck live sets are the stuff of legends. It’s the sound of the world, the West via the East, and from Beirut to Balkan Beat Box, it’s become a full-on trend. On the back of their appearance at Blues Fest, Gogol Bordello will be performing some select club shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
You’ve been warned folks.
