“The best party band in years” (NPR), Red Baraat has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound—a merging of hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of go-go, rock and jazz—fueled by three master rhythm makers, the muscle of horns, a raucous guitar and a booming sousaphone. Touring nonstop, they’ve astounded audiences at locations as diverse as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Monterey Jazz Festival, Luxembourg Philharmonic and the Bowery Ballroom, and performed at the request of The White House, Peter Gabriel, TED and the Olympic Games. Red Baraat communes with their audience in a joyful, near hedonistic celebration of music and dance, which tellingly, draws a crowd even more diverse than the players on stage.
With Special Guests: Raging Brass Reggae
Imagine a New Orleans street band playing Indian Bollywood tunes with a go-go beat — you can’t? Then just listen, because your day is about to get better. It’s a crazy blast of fun.”
