From its inception, Gogol Bordello has been a band of immigrants, with members hailing from Ukraine, Ecuador, Russia, and Ethiopia. They tour relentlessly. Travel is in their blood. Yet for all the long hours and far-flung adventures that birthed it, Gogol Bordello' advocate loudly for living life in a specific time and place: right now – and in the real world.
"People think you explore the world with the latest phone in your hand," says Hütz. That's the antithesis of living for Gogol Bordello…. My focus is always on staying experiential. Go for first-hand information, transmute it into wisdom, and share it with the people in a communal celebration.."
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
“Capture the moment … the moment is king."
