I've known about this band for a while, and searching the name here came up with no results. So here we go...

To quote wikipedia

Quote

"Gypsy punk is the term used to describe a hybrid musical genre that crosses traditional Romani music with punk rock and other brands of rebel music. The origin of the term is unknown, but bands playing Gypsy punk have existed at least since the 1990s. One of the first rock groups to incorporate elements of punk and Eastern European music was Motherhead Bug, who was active mostly in the early '90s.[1] The term became well-known to a broader audience after the band Gogol Bordello released the album Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike, with front man Eugene Hütz describing their performance as a "Gypsy Punk Cabaret"[2]. The term has also been subject to the debate that it exploits Roma culture. Gogol Bordello have since insisted it was just the name of their album, which was then taken and used by the music press as a term to define the genre of their music and similar artists—not an offshoot term for authentic Gypsy music.

Gypsy punk bands usually combine rock beats and instrumentation with more traditional Gypsy instrumentation such as drums, tambourine, accordion, fiddle, trumpet, and saxophone.[3] In addition, due to the varied ethnic makeup of the Gypsy culture, many bands sing in several different languages, often switching language multiple times within a single song."



And my personal favorite song of theirs...



I'd recommend this band to any fan of Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys. (Edit to fix videos)

Their latest album, "Transcontinental Hustle", is probably the best album I have heard this year.
