KULTUR SHOCK is a Seattle-based gypsy punk band which specializes in mixing music like rock, metal and punk with traditional Balkan music. Even if the style is impossible to define- many critics throw SOAD, GOGOL BORDELLO, MANU CHAO, GANG OF FOUR, THE POGUES, Balkan folk music, punk rock, heavy metal as references to it, but nothing can prepare the unsuspecting listener to what is going to come out of their home stereo speakers or what's going to happen to them during the 90 minutes live shows that the band is known for. In two words- the description is a mix of all of the above in a seamless new sound, that takes the listener on a trip and never lets go.
Active since 1996, KULTUR SHOCK members hail from Bosnia, Bulgaria, and the United States. The band has performed over 1000 shows throughout the United States and Europe.
The band defines itself as "a live band of blue-collar immigrants".
