Red Baraat is a pioneering band from Brooklyn, New York. Conceived by dhol player Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound— a merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra with elements of hip-hop, jazz and raw punk energy. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, Red Baraat’s spirit is worn brightly on its sweaty and hard-worked sleeve. Their infectious rhythms roll over the audience like a hurricane and let the audience breathe only in a short ballad pause. It’s here where Red Baraat does what it does best — commune with their audience in a joyful, near hedonistic celebration of music and dance.
“Red Baraat is a Brooklyn-based ensemble that makes heart-pounding, insanely infectious music…particularly known and loved for its unforgettable live performances.” —NPR
