Perkalaba is the Ukrainian answer to Goran Bregovic, Emir Kusturica & the No Smoking Orchestra, and Gogol Bordello, all of whom are immensely popular throughout the post-Soviet states. Formed in 1998, Perkalaba has become quite popular in continental Europe with it's distinct musical style, which the band calls gutzul roots. Ukrainian-born Gogol Bordello member Eugene HÃ¼tz is among Perkalaba's biggest fans, and he appears on DiDO as a vocalist on "Didoborodati." DiDO is more mature and polished than Perkalaba's earlier works, with more of a European sound than a gutzul style and arrangements that make use of keyboards, cello, and accordion. It's an album of mind-expanding interpretations of western Ukrainian folk music. Features guest appearances by Gogol Bordello, NOM, DahaBraha, Yuriy Gurzhy, and Rotfront.
