Total Gadjos do for Eastern European folk what Gogol Bordello did for Romani music and the Pogues did for Irish folk. They rev it up to punk speed and power while maintaining the melodic sense of the original sound and use the accordion, horns, brass, and sometimes violin for Eastern European folk authenticity. Total Gadjos celebrate Slavic music's confident, freewheeling party songs and transform its oppressive tunes into perseverance anthems.
