Red Baraat
Red Baraat
The ever evolving RED BARAAT is a pioneering band from Brooklyn, New York. Led by dhol player Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its merging of hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of funk, go-go, rock, and jazz. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, the band’s effortless outlook empowers their audience in a near hedonistic celebration of music and dance. “A knitted blend of poly-rhythmic panache exploring what it means to communicate music between individuals and across cultures,” states SPIN Magazine, and NPR has dubbed them “the best party band in years.”

Red Baraat will present a new show for a new year at Brooklyn Bowl. Returning to its roots of just brass and drums with new songs, and complete in colorfully painted white jumpsuits, Red Baraat will also be joined onstage by the fiery dancer, Brinda Guha. This show promises to be an immersive experience.

On the heels of a new album release, Sound The People, Red Baraat are very much taking their sonic signature to a new astral realm, while firmly placing it within the context of a globalized generation. All Songs Considered called their latest release “wildly infectious, soul-grooving music.” and Stereogum premiered the title track featuring Heems (Das Racist / Swet Shop Boys), “Red Baraat delivers an explosion of sound. A frenzy of funk, jazz, hip-hop, and Indian bhangra.”

Red Baraat has released five albums prior, including 2017’s Bhangra Pirates (#4 on World Music Charts Europe), 2012’s Shruggy Ji (debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music Charts) and their debut release in 2010, Chaal Baby, which was featured in FX TV show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Their infamous live show has criss-crossed the globe including stops at Bonnaroo, Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD Festival (UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Spain), Austin City Limits, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Luxembourg Philharmonic, New York City’s iconic Bowery Ballroom and Vienna Concert House. The band has performed at the request of The White House, TED, and the Olympic Games, and they’ve been curating their multi-city Red Baraat Festival of Colors for the past 7 years, based on the Hindu holiday of Holi.

BIGYUKI is NYC's musical secret weapon.

Supported by one drummer and one guitarist, (Justin Tyson [Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spalding], Randy Runyon [The Karma Exchange, Bilal]) it is hard to believe such a massive sound can be created by a trio. BIGYUKI's extensive vocabulary fuels his unprecedented sound, attracting the attention of many, including Grammy Award-winning and nominated artists such as Q-Tip, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Harvey Mason, Marcus Strickland, Mark Giuliana, and Me'Shell Ndegeocello.

This unique sound has been fully cultivated and pushed to a new and inspiring level in his debut body of work. Infusing elements of Jazz, Classical, HipHop, Soul, Rock, Dance, and Electronica into his compositions, BIGYUKI's record promises to be a soul-filling exploration into the infinite soundscapes of this virtuosic mind.
