Red Baraat, a nine-piece band from Brooklyn, New York, has been described as “a fiery blend of raucous Indian bhangra and funky New Orleans brass. The result, needless to say, is completely riotous” (Village Voice). Founded in 2008 and led by Sunny Jain, a master of the two-headed Indian drum known as the dhol, Red Baraat has created a world music fusion all its own. The band has recorded three albums (Chaal Baby, Bootleg Bhangra and Shruggy Ji), performed at major festivals and prestigious venues around the world, torn it up on radio programs Fresh Air, All Songs Considered and PRI’s The World and had its song “Chaal Baby” featured in a promo spot for the TV comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. With an instrumental line-up of dhol, drum set, percussion, sousaphone and five horns, Red Baraat pounds out a wild and unique sound track to a surrealistic, yet-to-be-made Bollywood movie set in New Orleans and New York City. They will get you moving on Friday and Saturday in the Dance Pavilion.
