Red Baraat’s Raucous Party Blends Banghra Music With New Orleans and Even Hip Hop
July 15, 2013 - At a Red Baraat show you may not even notice the music you are dancing and madly waving your hands and butt to is kinda sophisticated. The
combination of Punjabi Banghra music, New Orleans style jazz, go-go and even hip hop is so seamless and the vibe of the party is so exuberant
that barriers fall down.
Formed in 2008, 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 -- a merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of jazz, go-go, brass funk, and hip-hop.
