This time lapse video, shot by All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen, condenses an entire Gogol Bordello live concert into about 5 minutes. The performance was originally webcast live on NPR.org July 18. Download the full concert in the all songs considered concerts podcast, or stream it from the NPR Web site. http://www.npr.org/allsongslive Gogol Bordello is a spectacle. The wildly exuberant, multi-ethnic group from New York City makes frenetic music that's part punk rock, part Gypsy folk, part Cabaret. Led by Eugene Hutz, a Chernobyl survivor from Ukraine, the band is famous for its costumed live shows that often stretch for more than two explosive hours. Gogol Bordello performed at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club.
