Red Baraat+Underground System Afrobeat
Led by Sunny Jain, whose double-headed dhol drum serves as its heartbeat, the eight-piece "dhol ‘n’ brass" band expands India’s wedding-band template into a more inclusively throbbing caterwaul evocative of joyous brass-band cultures from New Orleans to the Balkans, but with a Bollywood bent. Underground System Afrobeat is an 11-piece juggernaut, with a strong Argentinean frontwoman, who update and Brooklyn-ify Fela Kuti’s revolutionary sound.
