Editors’ Notes

Pura Vida Conspiracy overflows with warmth, humor, and muscular musicianship. Gogol Bordello's sixth studio release—and its first for Dave Matthews’ ATO label—offers another geography lesson from these citizens of the world. Gogol Bordello started as a Gypsy band, and Eastern European and Celtic traditions remain at the core of everything the group creates. But Pura Vida Conspiracy pulls Tex-Mex, country, and Latin rhythms into the band's orbit as never before. “Malandrino” and “Dig Deep Enough” are stomping mariachi numbers, while “We Rise Again” shifts easily from English to Spanish and “I Just Realized” is a gentle samba. Never to stick with one style long, Gogol Bordello also does the sea shanty “It Is the Way You Name Your Ship” and the funky “John the Conqueror,” which fits neatly into no category. The album closes with an acoustic ballad that fades to silence before delivering a surprise ending. Acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle, accordion, drums, and bass crackle and pop while charismatic Ukrainian singer Eugene Hütz delivers populist lyrics such as “borders are scars on face of the planet” in joyous broken English.

Awesome Like always !!!

My Russian friends introduced me to Gogol bordelo haven't heard a bad song yet!!!

After being evacuated to western Ukraine in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical, outsider qualities of Gypsy music. Living as a refugee...
