J.U.F. -- the "Jewish-Ukrainishe-Freundschaft" -- a configuration that combines the ethnic punk wilding of Gogol Bordello with the eccentricities and pulsing multi-culti groove of Eugene Hutz's DJ sets. Programmer Tamir Muskat provides a base for Hütz's outrageous multilingual vocals, samples of violins and accordions, the guitar of Oren Kaplan, and horns of Ori Kaplan; the songs draw on everything from Eastern European and Arabic influences, through gutter punk grit, to the urban electronica of Stereo MC's and the downtown chatting of Soul Coughing's M. Doughty. Don't bother putting this album on in the daylight, though. This is city music, made for what happens long after the midnight hour.
Gogol Bordello's sixth full-length album. The album’s title is derived from a Spanish slang phrase for “pure life,” which is a theme that resonates throughout the 12 surging songs.
