Red Baraat brings its Northern India-style fusion funk to The Mint, 6010 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles and celebrates the Hindu holiday of Hol on March 11. During Holi, South Asian people throw colored powder at each other and celebrate their blessings. In a similar manner, Red Baraat makes their performance colorful, wearing festive clothing and embracing the party style in their music, keeping it fresh and upbeat. Band leader Sunny Jain thought of the idea to blend North Indian bhangra with jazz and horns and the results have been positive. Completely original and innovative, Red Baraat deserves its rave reviews and has a devoted fan base. Red Baraat’s June 2018 release ‘Sound the People’ scored a top 10 position on the World Music Charts Europe. Red Baraat brings its message of inclusivity around the world, and the band has fans everywhere they’ve played including Abu Dhabi, Kazakhstan, Canada and Europe.
