Description:
Red Baraat Festival of Colors at World Cafe Live

Red Baraat Festival of Colors is an immersive celebration through music, dance and visuals. After presenting a multi-city annual for 8 straight years that showcased South Asian artists during the Hindu holiday of Holi, Red Baraat has taken the spirit of the festival to the next level: a year round show of communal revelry that brings together what NPR has called the best party band in years, a montage of classic Bollywood visuals, and a fiery dancer.
Traditionally, Holi is marked by public gatherings of families and strangers sharing songs, dance, and the exchange of colors'. It signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships.
Red Baraat Festival of Colors debuted in 2012 at a sold out Le Poisson Rouge in New York City and then expanded to over a dozen cities in the United States. Previously, bandleader and dhol player Sunny Jain curated a night of music highlighting the South Asian Diaspora through a diverse range of styles. Past festivals included DJ Rekha, Vidya Vox, Falu, Heems (Das Racist/Swet Shop Boys), Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (a film by the late, award-winning filmmaker, Prashant Bhargava, with score by Grammy-nominated composer, Vijay Iyer) and so many more.
Returning to its roots of just brass and drums and complete in colorfully painted white jumpsuits plus a dancer, the new show, Red Baraat Festival of Colors, is a full blown immersive experience as the band, the visuals, the dancer are like a mlange of colors, each bold on its own but commingling to form a stunning panorama.
