Gogol Bordello - "Pala Tute" live (PopMatters Premiere)

Gogol Bordello is a long-time PopMatters favorite, as we have a serious weakness in these parts for genre-bending music that draws from many of the world’s sounds and has an international sensibility. The New York gypsy punks release their toe-tapping and butt-shaking new album Trans-Continental Hustle this coming week and “Pala Tute” is the infectious lead-off tune.

In this short video, frontman and singer Eugene Hütz discusses the band’s love of recording in Brazil interspersed with live performance segments of this hyper-catchy song. This is feel-good gypsy party music, perfectly suited to the brighter times right around the corner as summer comes and the recession fades.
