"The best party band in years!" - NPR
Red Baraat performs a kaleidoscopic fusion of world music. Part Bollywood, part New Orleans brass band, their rollicking stage shows are driven by bandleader Sunny Jain's dhol drum and rounded out by a raucous five-piece brass section. Their music is a potent mix of North Indian bhangra music laced with elements of funk, go-go, hip-hop, jazz and Latin rhythms that meld into a signature, pluralistic sound that is pure celebration!
