Gogol Bordello’s unique gypsy-punk sound grew out of the immigrant experiences of frontman Eugene Hutz, a Ukranian forced from his home by 1986’s Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Hutz lived in Hungary, Austria, and Italy before settling in New York City and founding the band in 1998.
Since then, Gogol Bordello has achieved a worldwide following, helped in part by Hutz’s boisterous personality and film-noir good looks. Just ask Madonna, who cast him as the lead in her movie Filth and Wisdom.
To join in on the fun, check out two videos of the band, shot by SPIN correspondents in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Eugene Hutz, the global gypsy punk and star of Madonna’s directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom, began rocking out back in his native Ukraine before fleeing the Chernobyl disaster with his family. They landed in Vermont, but he eventually found his way to New York City’s East Village where he gained notoriety for his onstage antics in the band Gogol Bordello, his mad DJ skills at the legendary Bulgarian bar Menahata, and that amazing moustache. He’s even been a model — both the high fashion and the naked kind (in the now-defunct Sweet Action).
