Hello Gogol Familia!
Here’s all the legit info you need to know for Saturday’s Global Gypsy Punk Review at Bonnaroo… We shall be partying all day and night with full multi-kulti flavor.
Things will be getting started in THE OTHER TENT on Saturday at 12:45 PM and ending with massive Gogol Bordello set starting at 2:00 AM!!!
ALL DAY LONG – DJ sets from DJ HUTZ and DJ DUBTA and collaborations and a surprize or two
CURATED AND HOSTED BY EUGENE HUTZ
Here is Eugene’s run down of the sched…
12:45 PM – HANGGAI
Discovered through our friends from NPR, Hanggai brings Mongolian throat singing and rhythms with punk. This long expected evolutionary process is a long time coming. They bring cultural politics with punk attitude which makes Hanngai a legitimate member of extended gypsy punk familia. Because of having a chinese member in Gogol Bordello we were always in tune with that particular hood and are especially excited to introduce this example of Chinese and Mongolian counter culture
2:15 PM – FORRO IN THE DARK
The great thing about Forro in the Dark is they make modern day music out of the wild side of Brazilian Folk., something that see’s no export from Brazil but something that is a foundation of its authentic flamboyance. Great grooves and instrumentationalism that caught attention of David Bryne, Chilli Peppers, Radiohead and others.
3:45-4:45 PM – JOVANOTTI
Jovanotti has been shaking up things in european scene with multi kulti hip hop for years, bringing elements of European and mediterranean ethnical sounds and infusing them with everything great hip hop has to offer. Even after achieving super stardom in Italy , he still continues to bring street credible infectious music everywhere he goes.
5:15–6:30 PM – DEVOTCHKA
Devotchka has been representing the All Americana brand of Gypsy Punk for a long time. Their powerful artistic sensibilities and song writing craftsmanship has been turning a lot of ears. Just as the other bands on the stage are coming to America as strangers, Devotchka are one of the rare American bands that look outwards internationally, do not play it safe and will be an Oasis of delicate beauty within this stage line up.
7:00 – 8:30 PM – BOOTSY COLLINS & THE FUNK UNIVERSITY
Just one thing to say – FREAK OUT!
12:30 – 1:30 AM – OMAR SOULEYMAN
Omar has appeared on indie scene like a meteor. Even those inexperienced in middle eastern music responded to his manic energy and hardcore Arabic dancehall. Souleyman’s music will keep you in a special groove in between full balls out carthasis and primitive buckwild electronica. Musician of unending power, Omar has rocked over thousands of parties and released over 500 fucking albums!
2:00 AM – GOGOL BORDELLO
Here, I wanna think Bonaroo for not only hosting us for third time but also letting us bring our friends and international gypsy punk familia. Me and GB family will close down the party like you have never fucking seen before.
See you there!
