Krupa (song)


Krupa (song)

"Krupa" is a 1998 song by the British techno/rock band Apollo 440.

The song is a homage to the Polish-American drummer Gene Krupa and is almost completely instrumental. The only lyrics in the entire song are "Yeah yeah" and "Now back to the Gene Krupa's syncopated style" (a sample from dialogue in the film "Taxi Driver"), which are only repeated a couple of times. The main focus of the song is on the drumming rhythms, which pay homage to Gene Krupa's improvised style of drumming.

The song has also been made into a music video, which shows various generic people on a normal day in a typical city. The video avoids showing people's faces to emphasise the focus on the music itself.
