Red Baraat CL Recommends

When: Thu., May 8 2014
Price: $15/$18

The word Baraat in several Indian languages means wedding procession. It’s where the dhol (double-sided, barrel-shaped drum) player leads a horns-fueled band to accompany the groom and his wedding party as they dance through the streets on their way to the nuptials at the bride’s house. Red Baraat fuses that joyful cacophony into a weave of bhangra, New Orleans brass band, funk, Latin jazz, Bollywood beats and more. The Brooklyn band’s leader Sunny Jain is an accomplished jazz drummer and a feisty dhol player, guiding this outfit of kindred musical souls that traverse the global streets and arrive at the juncture of Indian percussion and, well, the party.
