The ever evolving RED BARAAT is a pioneering band from Brooklyn, New York. Led by dhol player Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its merging of hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of funk, go-go, rock, and jazz – fueled by master rhythm makers, the muscle of horns, raucous guitar, and a booming sousaphone. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, the band’s effortless outlook empowers their audience in a near hedonistic celebration of music and dance. “A knitted blend of poly-rhythmic panache exploring what it means to communicate music between individuals and across cultures,” states SPIN Magazine, and NPR has dubbed them “the best party band in years.”
On the heels of a new album release, Sound The People, Red Baraat are very much taking their sonic signature to a new astral realm, while firmly placing it within the context of a globalized generation. All Songs Considered called their latest release “wildly infectious, soul-grooving music.” and Stereogum premiered the title track featuring Heems (Das Racist / Swet Shop Boys), “Red Baraat delivers an explosion of sound. A frenzy of funk, jazz, hip-hop, and Indian bhangra.”
Red Baraat has released five albums prior, including 2017’s Bhangra Pirates (#4 on World Music Charts Europe), 2012’s Shruggy Ji (debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music Charts) and their debut release in 2010, Chaal Baby, which was featured in FX TV show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Their infamous live show has criss-crossed the globe including stops at Bonnaroo, Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD Festival (UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Spain), Austin City Limits, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Luxembourg Philharmonic, New York City’s iconic Bowery Ballroom and Vienna Concert House. The band has performed at the request of The White House, TED, and the Olympic Games, and they’ve been curating their multi-city Red Baraat Festival of Colors for the past 7 years, based on the Hindu holiday of Holi.
Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio
DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO was formed in the Spring of 2015 by Amy Novo, Delvon Lamarr’s wife and band manager. She told her husband she would take over his music career and all he had to do was find the musicians, create and play music. They originally started with another guitarist and drummer. Within a year they brought on infamous Jimmy James. Immediately the chemistry between the three of them was undeniable. With Delvon’s soulful organ sound, and Jimmy’s explosive guitar sound and former drummer perfect pocket drumming, they have the perfect blend of Soul, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll.
They started with a weekly Residency at The Royal Room in Seattle for the first year then self released their first album, playing short tours from Idaho, Spokane, Seattle, Bellingham, Olympia, Portland, Reno, California and festivals including an upcoming European tour. Eventually signing with Colemine Records which is a story in itself only Amy, Delvon, and Colemine know the details. Shortly after signing with Record Label they re-released their album on a 45, LP, cassette, CD and digitally. Many more exciting things to come. Several months later they signed with The Kurland Agency, a well known booking agency out of Boston. The band has since gone from a local Seattle band to a national and international household name.
The love, passion and devotion Amy Novo, Colemine Records and The Kurland Agency has for their music creates the perfect power team. In the Fall of 2018, the band welcomed their new drummer, Doug Octa Port, who brings a brilliant new take on a familiar sound.
