Famously dubbed “The best party band in years” by NPR, Brooklyn’s Red Baraat merges hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of go-go, rock, and jazz. The band’s annual Festival of Colors is a celebration of Holi, a Hindu holiday marked by public gatherings of families, friends, and strangers rejoicing in song, dance, and the exchange of “colors." The holiday signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and an opportunity to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive. Curated by bandleader and dhol player Sunny Jain, Festival of Colors features a celebratory night filled with music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora in America featuring Red Baraat and special guests to be announced soon! It also marks the band’s release of the its new album, Bhangra Pirates, on Rhyme & Reason Records.
