Enjoy a sound so powerful it has positioned Red Baraat in its own utterly unique and enviable class. With joy and audacity, this ninepiece dhol n brass powerhouse has subsumed a plateful of global inﬂuence, fused it and is now exporting it, Brooklyn-style, to the world. A fiery blend of raucous Indian bhangra and funky New Orleans brass (Village Voice), Red Baraats high-energy, nonstop musical revelry is equal parts concert and party. Performing new tracks from their 2012 release, Shruggy Ji, and some of their past critically-lauded hits, Red Baraat will take the stage putting some New York bluster atop faraway roots (New York Times).
