Forces of Victory


Listen to Gogol Bordello’s new song, “Forces of Victory.” Three strong and very diverse Ukrainian musical voices join together on this track: Gogol Bordello, featuring performances by the legendary poet and punk-rocker Serhiy Zhadan, and ethno-synth-pop sensation Kazka, who are both from hard-fighting city of Kharkiv. This is a message of inspiration and support to defenders of Ukraine, whose integrity and righteous fierceness has been indisputable and reflected by these vigorous creative forces.

“Forces of Victory” is streaming now on all digital platforms:

The manta-like chorus translates as:
“Just when it seems I can no longer go on
That is exactly how I know that I will make it
I know it’s exactly how the forces of victory awaken deep within
When you are half way through… ”

“Forces of Victory” is also a lead track of compilation Artdopomoga Vol 2 which features Ukrainian artists reacting to war (produced by Ivan Derbastler):
