Red Baraat set to visit the Rockies + NPR Short Film

Red Baraat were at the center of the biggest musical event of New York City’s summer season. The pioneering Brooklyn band were commissioned by NPR to produce a new composition – the sheet music for which was posted on NPR and other high traffic websites – with the direction to readers and amateur players to learn the music and be a part of the premiere of the performance on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library. The incredible results of this experiment, (first attempted two years ago by NPR with a new work and performance by the legendary Phillip Glass) can be seen in this short film released by NPR today.

From Brooklyn, Red Baraat have been called ‘The best party band in years’ (NPR) and blend high energy North Indian Bhangra with New Orleans brass, DC go-go rhythms and R&B.  Simply put, there is nothing like Red Baraat- whose incredible high energy shows -- and ethos of pluralism and the proliferation of joy -- have brought them to stages as diverse as Bonnaroo, Central Park, and The White House. The group has played at the personal request of leaders of the free world, business, and sport – including performing at the flagship TED Conference, at the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games in Trafalgar Square, and on Google’s Mountain View Campus, while maintaining a non-stop club and theatre worldwide tour.

The group will make their debut in three Colorado cities in July/August amidst a heavy tour schedule of festivals and club dates.
