In this segment of Drop the Mic, Lovonia Mallory interviews Sunny Jain, band leader of Red Baraat. Red Baraat is a pioneering band from Brooklyn, New York. Conceived by dhol player Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound, a merging of hard driving North Indian bhangra with elements of hip-hop, jazz and raw punk energy. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, Red Baraat’s spirit is worn brightly on its sweaty and hard-worked sleeve.
Red Baraat will be performing at Saratoga Performing Arts Center Monday, August 26th, 2019 at 8PM.
