SHIMMERING city kaleidoscope BOUNCING with Fela’s beats, BUBBLING up boom box blasting Led Zeppelin on skateboarder’s shoulders, as solo saxophone soars into sky from 3rd floor window. In line at Punjabi Deli, behind cabbies, chai spills into the tang of HOT asphalt street. Bhangra sounds take hold of my body. I am home in New York City, birth of Red Baraat. .. .. ..Bangin' Bhangra 'n' Brass Funk.... .. .. Led by dholi Sunny Jain, Red Baraat is the first and only dhol ‘n’ brass band in the States, melding the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with brass funk and expressing the human spirit through improvisation and a powerful live sound. Comprised of dhol (double-sided, barrel-shaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder), drumset, percussion, sousaphone, and 5 horns, this NYC-based group plays fresh originals and Bollywood classics with an explosive stage performance and presence.

In the short time since their inception, the group has delivered blistering performances at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Lincoln Center, Madison World Music Festival, Concert of Colors (Detroit), 4th Annual Droma Gypsy Festival, Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), Molde Jazz Festival (Norway), Chicago Folks & Roots Festival, The Kitchen performance art space, India Independence Day Parade, as well as a live radio broadcast on John Schaefer's Soundcheck WNYC-FM 93.9, an NPR affiliate. Red Baraat also recorded the credit roll theme song for the movie, The Yes Men Fix the World and performed for Ports 1961 at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (NYC). Red Baraat has been featured in National Geographic, Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Relix and Songlines, among many others.

The group's debut CD, Chaal Baby (Sinj Records), was released on January 30, 2010. ..
