part of the band, and how they quit their day jobs to go on tour. Taking pride in his Roma (or Gypsy) background, Hütz not only sings in Romany, he collaborates with and supports New York City’s Roma musicians, such as Yuri Yunakov, and Piroska Racz. And after five years on the road, the band has
coalesced into a solid artistic collective, a family.
Through music, the film delivers messages of social and political commentary, and captures Gogol Bordello in the act of performing, whether as headliner or as the spark of incendiary jams with such acts as Fanfare Ciocarlia (a traditional Gypsy brass band), and Manu Chao (a French/Spanish rocker). And with an international tribe of “multi-culti” fan-friend supporters, Gogol Bordello keeps instigating creative hell and attacking people’s passivity (Hütz).
Gogol Bordello Non-Stop goes beyond music, beyond the political, opening hearts and ears to an artistic revolution in a globalized era.
