Okay so take Eastern European folk music, add a dash of polka, and blend with straight-up Music/PunkRock. This is something along the lines of the recipe for Gogol Bordello.

* TropeNamer: Gypsy Punk.
** Another famous band of the genre are the Norwegians Music/KaizersOrchestra, who are more indebted to Music/TomWaits than to Music/ThePogues. Kaizers are likely the TropeCodifier of Gypsy Punk.

* GenreAdultery: Each album will be somewhat folkish punkish but just how much punk and just how much folk is never certain. They've been known to cover some traditional Eastern European folk songs. In the collaboration known as Jüdisch-Ukrainische Freundschaft (J.U.F. for short) between Gogol Bordello and Balkan Beat, things take a more dancey turn.
** The band also have some reggae and dub influences, the song DogsWereBarking starting off as a frenetic gypsy punk song before having a dub middle section complete with toasting (Jamaican style rapping).

* RecurringElement: A girl named Sally is mentioned quite a few times
** Odds are it's Sally Norvell, with whom Hutz duets on "God-Like"
*** Possibly that's where he got the name, but the Sally of the titular song is a 15 year old girl from Nebraska who gets overwhelmed by gypsy culture when they pass through her little town, and then starts travelling with them. The Sally in the other songs is presumably the same character.
