You might remember Brooklyn's Red Baraat as the eight-piece band that had you on your feet and moving at The XPoNential Music Festival this summer. They closed out the Marina Stage on Friday night with a set punctuated by swift percussion, lively horns and high energy.
The band, led by dhol player Sunny Jain, puts a spin on the Bhangra music of Northern India by mixing in a jazzy brass section and injecting the party vibe of a funk band. The band has released three albums on SinJ Records, most recently Shruggy Ji. They play The Blockely on November 22 with like-minded locals West Philadelphia Orchestra, and they join us earlier that day as our Free at Noon guests.
Relive their XPoNential Music Festival performance.
