I featured the music of Gogol Bordello here earlier. He is an artist living in NYC and is highly visible as a Gypsy Punk Rocker, though this is very sophisticated music. I wrote a few posts back about hard times producing great music. The music coming out of Eastern Europe and its offshoots is some of the most inventive, passionate and creative pop being produced today.
This piece is called, Not A Crime! From Gogol Bordellos latest cd, Side One, Dummy!
Last week I posted a piece called Sarko vs. Gypsy by a Romanian band called VAMA. featuring the singer Raflo. It's still at the top of my hit parade....here's a chance to check it out again!
