At a Red Baraat show, the combination of Punjabi Bhangra music, New Orleans-style jazz, go-go and even hip-hop is so seamless — and the vibe of the party is so exuberant — that barriers fall down. Some of the best party music ever. – NPR



Following the release of their breakthrough album Shruggy Ji earlier this year, Brooklyn's Red Baraat continue to tour tirelessly and are now set to bring their wild, brass-infused bhangra to fans as far away as India and across the U.S. in coming months. The eight-piece has confirmed festival dates including Bumbershoot and Austin City Limits along with headlining slots at WorldFest in Louisville and LotusFest in Bloomington. In November, Red Baraat will present a special homecoming show at Brooklyn Bowl, having become a must-see for New Yorkers throughout 2013 as the band headlined Central Park Summerstage, Webster Hall and Fort Greene Park. See below for a complete list of tour dates.

Since the January release of Shruggy Ji, Brooklyn's Red Baraat have seen a meteoric rise, snagging a #1 debut on Billboard's World Music chart, sell out shows across the country and features in the Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News and NPR's Weekend Edition and more.
