Red Baraat

January 26

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 Baraat’s 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).
