For my Peace Globe today I'm featuring a band who epitomizes my own philosophy regarding world peace.
If you're busy playing music, dancing, singing and celebrating life, there is no room for aggression, destruction and suffering.
As this band likes to sing: Party! Party! Party! Party! Party! Party! After party!
Gogol Bordello is a band made of members from all around the world:
They come from a wide assortment of ethnic and religious backgrounds, including Eastern European, Gypsy or Romani, African, Indigenous people of the Americas and Asian.
There are men and women.
Their ages range from 30 years old to 54.
If you watch the clip, you'll catch the infectious delirium of joy this group exudes. The crowd is jumping!
Lead singer Eugene Hutz sings in a mixture of English, Ukrainian and Gypsy/Romani. Here are the lyrics from the song that I offer to the Blog Blast today:
Mishto means "Good"
Sha bu'et kruto blya! Sha bu'et kruto! means "This is gonna kick ass!"
T´aven saste taj baxtale means "You should be healthy and lucky"
Is this what we really need?
What if this is my only chance?
What if this is my holy war?
What if this is my stupid dance?
What the f#%k you waiting for?
