Bhangra Pirates Record Release Party

Famously dubbed “The best party band in years” by NPR, Red Baraat is a pioneering eight-piece band from right here in Brooklyn. 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 go-go, rock and jazz — fueled by 3 master rhythm makers, the muscle of horns, a raucous guitar and a booming sousaphone. 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. Mixing originals and Bollywood favorites, Red Baraat has performed internationally from the Montreal Jazz Festival to our stage at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. Their first full performance at BRIC House will be to celebrate the release of their new album Bhangra Pirates.

The high energy, horn-driven group Huntertones opens the party with their signature sound that melds jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, R&B, and rock.
