Gypsy punk

Gypsy punk

Gypsy punk is the term used to describe a hybrid musical genre that crosses traditional Roma music with punk rock and other brands of rebel music. The term first was coined by musician Eugene Hütz, when describing his band Gogol Bordello, to the New York City weekly newspaper "The Village Voice". [The Village Voice: [,hoard,34562,1.html Gogol a Go-Go] ]

Representatives of this genre include Gogol Bordello, DeVotchKa,Luminescent Orchestrii, J.U.F., Golem, Mojo Juju & the Snake Oil Merchants Kultur Shock, Jason Webley, Jabul Gorba, and to an extent, Zabranjeno pušenje, as well as some related offshoots, such as Alamaailman Vasarat, and Beirut. Gypsy punk bands usually combine rock beats and instrumentation with more traditional Gypsy instrumentation such as drums, tambourine, accordion, fiddle, trumpet, and saxophone. In addition, due to the varied ethnic makeup of the Gypsy culture, many bands sing in several different languages, often switching language multiple times within a single song.
