Bursting out of Brooklyn, New York's multicultural melting-pot, comes the explosive sound of bhangra fusionists Red Baraat. Led by dhol player Sunny Jain, this high-quality, high-energy, nine-piece percussion and brass ensemble have made a name for themselves as a dangerously infectious mood-enhancing machine, spreading their coruscating mix of bhangra, funk, go-go, latin and jazz, inducing outbreaks of spontaneous dancing wherever they play: from local wedding parties to major festivals such as Montreal Jazz or Bonnaroo; from the sweaty confines of Brooklyn's Barbes club to the rarefied air of the White House. It's a sound full of forthright improvisation and compelling forward motion, a meeting of Indian Gypsy brass band, New Orleans marching band and funkified free jazz ensemble, making one joyful noise. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
