Red Baraat Festival of Colors

NPR has dubbed Brooklyn-based Red Baraat “the best party band in year,” and we couldn’t agree with them more!! Their 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. Don’t miss on what promises to be one killer party!!

Artist Bio

RED BARAAT 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.

The festival debuted in 2012 at a sold out Le Poisson Rouge in New York City and has since expanded to cities nationwide.  This year's iteration will take place in NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC,  Boston, Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia and beyond.

Bandleader and dhol player Sunny Jain curates a night of music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora in America. Past lineups have included DJ Rekha, Falu, Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (a film by the late, award-winning filmmaker, Prashant Bhargava, and Grammy-nominated pianist/composer, Vijay Iyer), Brooklyn Raga Massive, Mandeep Sethi, Parijat Desai Dance Company, Rupa & The April Fishes and Madame Gandhi.

Special guests for the 2017 Red Baraat Festival of Colors will be announced soon! This tour is in conjunction with the release of the band’s new album BHANGRA PIRATES on Rhyme & Reason Records.
