Red Baraat


The thunderous local drums-and-brass ensemble presents its second annual Festival of Colors. Led by Sunny Jain, whose double-headed dhol drum serves as its heartbeat, Red Baraat 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. India-raised Vandana Jain plays experimental synth-pop, and the Parijat Desai Dance Company brings its blend of Indian classical and Western contemporary dance.
