Red Baraat

Led by the omnivorous drummer Sunny Jain, Red Baraat is a fun, infectious Brooklyn-based band that deftly blends North Indian bhangra rhythms, rowdy brass-band energy, and konokol singing to create an explosive sound that’s “fun as hell” (Chicago Reader).The music is grounded by heavy-duty sousaphone basslines, abundant percussion, and potent free improvising from trombone, saxophones, trumpet and bass trumpet.

  1. This was such an amazing concert! Having moved to the Valley recently from Brooklyn, it was such a pleasure to see one of my favorite bands play. Please bring them back and lots more music like this!!!

  2. What a fantastic show. Everyone was dancing as it was almost impossible to sit in your seat when the music was playing. I would LOVE to see them again!

  3. This concert was a lot of fun! After the first song, the entire crowd was on their feet dancing for the rest of the show- all ages and backgrounds. The band seemed to be having a lot of fun as well. I would definitely love to see more bands like this come through the area- including a repeat performance from this group anytime!

  4. This was the first time I heard or saw Red Baraat – but they are fantastic and amazing! What an exceptional group! I look forward to seeing them again and others like it.

  5. I saw them at Mass MOCA at the end of January and they were great, so when I found out they were coming to UMass, I was thrilled and bought tickets immediately. They put on a fantastic show. I hope they return to UMass soon.

  6. Red Baraat was wonderful. We had a great time, ages 45 to 90 — dancing in the aisles. Hope they return. If they do, I will recruit all my friends to come.

  7. These guys are wonderful. We were dancing in the aisles. Hope they return, and I will bring all my friends.

  8. Amazing concert! The energy they have is infectious. I would jump at the chance to see Red Baraat again!

  9. It was a great show! I missed them at the Montreal Jazz Festival last year and so was thrilled when I saw they were going to be coming to Amherst. Thank you to the band and to FAC for bringing them here.
