Gogol Bordello's unique gypsy-punk sound grew out of the immigrant experiences of frontman Eugene Hutz, a Ukranian forced from his home by 1986's Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Hutz lived in Hungary, Austria, and Italy before settling in New York City and founding the band in 1993.

Since then, Gogol Bordello has achieved a worldwide following, helped in part by Hutz's boisterous personality and film-noir good looks. Just ask Madonna, who cast him as the lead in her movie Filth and Wisdom.

To join in on the fun, check out two videos of the band, shot by SPIN correspondents in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
