Globalization: Preventing the Sameness of the World.
Audio produced by Judith Sloan as part of the Crossing the BLVD series by Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan features the words of Eugene Hütz–leader of the gypsy-punk-cabaret band Gogol Bordello—sharing his views on ‘globalization’ and putting forward an alternative vision of what he calls “multi-kontra culture.” Warren and Judith were hanging out on a rooftop one hot summer evening in the Lower East Side of New York, drinking vodka with members of Gogol Bordello, when Eugene came out with his critique of globalization and multi-culturalism, and offered up a kind of extemporaneous manifesto of multi-kontra culture. They liked his vision so much, they ended their 400 page, 4-color book with it (W.W. Norton). Judith mixed it with some street noise and the accordion of Yuri Lemeshev, also from Gogol Bordello, and made it the last cut on the Crossing the BLVD CD.
