Cause I love asking questions that make people mad

So, earlier we had a discussion about Eugene Hutz and Gogol Bordello, vs. any claim to Romanipen.  Someone mentioned that he had played for some Romani elders and they disapproved, to keep it short.  I tried googling it and found nothing in support of this.  Can someone direct me to an article, youtube video, interview, or something?

There was also some speculation as to his upbringing, and practice of Romaniya.  I have some pretty strong opinions about all this, and it seems I disagree with pretty much everyone I follow, but I’m always open to hearing new evidence.
