SPAC on Stage Series: Red Baraat


The infectious rhythms and pioneering style of RED BARAAT intricately layer lively North Indian bhangra with elements of hip-hop, jazz and raw punk energy. RED BARAAT’s album Sound The People, reached the top 10 on the World Music Charts Europe and was heralded in the US as the anthem soundtrack for the South Asian diaspora by STEREOGUM: “The album is full of moments that hit with the force of a spiritual awakening…The funk, ska-punk, and other American forms that make their way into the music are layered intricately within the same threadwork as the ragas on which these songs are pulled from. Each piece is a gesture of cultural harmony, rendering not only genre irrelevant, but the geographic placement of those sounds.”
