Punk rock band Gogol Bordello is set to perform as part of the Ukraine Relief Fund Gala. Frontman Eugene Hutz was born in Ukraine and grew up on the outskirts of Kyiv before immigrating with his parents to the United States when he was 16. Hutz is an outspoken supporter of his home country and has organized fundraising events that have included performances by his band Gogol Bordello and other celebrated musicians. In a recent interview with the Ukrainian Institute of London, Hutz expressed his perspective on the resolve of the Ukrainian people.
“This is a pretty serious trait of Ukrainians – their resilience and that whole turning frustration into inspiration, and anger into energy and defiance and resistance,” said Hutz. “It’s a fight of people for their own destiny. Ukrainians are very good at that.”
