NASHVILLE SCENE Critic's Pick for RED BARAAT, a party not to be missed, RETURNS TO NASHVILLE!!:

A “Red Baraat” is a raucous party. In India, it’s a wedding procession in which red, the flashiest color in Hindu culture, is worn. Dhol drums — double-sided and barrel-shaped North Indian drums slung over one shoulder — accompany dancers who work themselves to exhaustion in joyous celebration. Bollywood dance music and bhangra music, its urban-fusion cousin, trace their hip-shaking roots back to the baraat, making it the grandmother soundtrack of escapist revelry. Red Baraat takes the party to another level. Named by NPR as “one of the best party bands around.” Their signature Bhangra Funk style is big-band jazz brass over the crackling beat of the dhol, cranked up to get your hips shaking. This is a party you don’t want to miss.

Led by drummer Sunny Jain, Red Baraat delivers a riveting new sound that is coupled with an explosive stage performance and presence. Comprised of dhol (double-sided, barrel-shaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder), drumset, percussion, sousaphone, and five horns, Red Baraat melds the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with a host of sounds-namely funk, go-go, Latin, and jazz. With the group's performance in 2011 globalFEST, the New York City based band was the top pick and subsequently featured on PRI's The World, NPR's All Songs Considered, The New York Times, The Village Voice, and Mother Jones magazine.

    Friendly reminder, Great Barrier Reefs on at 8pm, RED BARAAT to follow...

    "Jain's booming dhol anchors the infectious beat, while soprano saxophonist Arun Luthra warbles in long Indian lines..... over a street-party bounce that's almost "salsa-like."
    Nashville SCENE Great show of support here...thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
