Biography

Led by dhol player 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 5 horns, Red Baraat melds the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with a host of sounds, namely funk, go-go, Latin and jazz. The NYC-based group is quickly gaining fans across the world because of the experience they bring their audiences.

After the group’s performance at the 2011 globalFEST, Red Baraat was a top pick favorite and featured on PRI’s The World, NPR’s All Songs Considered, New York Times, The Village Voice and Mother Jones magazine.

Red Baraat’s debut CD, Chaal Baby (Sinj Records) was received with an overwhelming positive response and was voted by several music critics as a top world and jazz release of 2010. Since their inception in October 2008, Red Baraat has delivered blistering performances at globalFEST, Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, Madison World Music Festival, Concert of Colors (Detroit), Droma Gypsy Festival, Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), Molde Jazz Festival (Norway) and Chicago Folks & Roots Festival, among many others. Red Baraat appeared on John Schaefer’s Soundcheck WNYC-FM 93.9, an NPR affiliate, in which they were picked as a top live radio performance of 2009. They also recorded the credit roll theme song for the movie, The Yes Men Fix the World and performed at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (NYC) for Ports 1961 runway models.
