Red Baraat In Cleveland says

Red Baraat is a pioneering eight-piece band from Brooklyn, New York. Conceived by Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound — “rollicking funk music steeped in Northern India’s wedding celebrations, with a dash of D.C. go-go beats and hip-hop” (NPR). 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. And is being returned to them in cities all over the world, as word spreads of the band’s incredibly powerful live performances.

The release of Red Baraat’s 2nd album in 2012, Shruggy Ji, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music charts propelled the band on a nonstop three-year world tour that included performances at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Monterey Jazz Festival and WOMAD, along with clubs, theatres, and performing arts centers across the world. Along the way, they sold out rooms as diverse as the Luxembourg Philharmonic and the Bowery Ballroom, and performed at the request of The White House, TED, Olympic Games and Peter Gabriel. Their 2016 digital EP, Livewire, shows a new direction in sound with added guitar and processed effects on the dhol and sousaphone.

“Calling it a party doesn’t quite cut it. But when there’s no room to dance-or march, even that’s probably the best word.” (Relix Magazine)
