Red Baraat set to ‘rock and dhol’ through summer

NEW YORK: In just over two short years, the pioneering Brooklyn dhol n’ brass party juggernaut Red Baraat have made a name for themselves as one of the best live bands playing anywhere in the world. Led by dhol player Sunny Jain, the nine piece (comprised of dhol ((double-sided barrel shaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder)) drumset, percussion, 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.

It’s a sound so powerful it has left the band in its own utterly unique and enviable class. These days you are as likely to find Red Baraat throwing down at an overheated and unannounced warehouse party in their Brooklyn neighborhood as you are at Lincoln Center. Or the Montreal Jazz Festival. Or the Barbican. It’s a band unquestionably on the ascent playing some of the most prestigious festivals and theatres worldwide, and keeping their chops razor sharp in basements and sweaty sold out clubs across New York City. 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 Brooklyn-style to the world.

Recorded at Brooklyn’s Southpaw on the band’s second anniversary, ‘Bootleg Bhangra’ is the band’s incredibly powerful live show captured on tape, set to be released July 12. With songs pulled primarily from their debut, Chaal Baby, the group was mindful of the challenge to capture a rapturous live sound on record. Well, it happened on this night, and the resulting document places you squarely in that small Brooklyn club jammed from front to back with hip shaking beauties- hands raised to a ceiling dripping with condensation. The band is currently at work on the follow up to Chaal Baby, Shruggy Ji, which should see release in early 2012. The band is on the road for much of the summer.

Beginning with Quebec, Canada on July 7, and ending Sept 30 in Philadelphia, Red Baraat will be traveling with performances throughout summer.
