Happy New Year Everybody!
I know nothing about these guys but thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone is interested!
RED BARAAT have made a name for themselves as one of the best live bands playing anywhere in the world. Led by dhol drummer Sunny Jain, the nine piece (comprised of dhol ((double-sided barrel shaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder)) drumset, percussion, a sousaphone, and 5 horns) melds the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with a host of sounds, namely funk, go-go, latin, and jazz. Simply put, Sunny Jain and Red Baraat have created and defined a sound entirely their own which NPR has called 'the best party band in years.' Leading an audience as diverse and joyful as the band itself, Red Baraat has subsumed a plateful of global influence, fused it, and is now exporting it New York-style to the world. The unique ensemble has brought their musical message of global unity to some of the world's most prestigious stages, including Lincoln Center, London's Barbican, and have been featured performers at the renowned TED Conference.
