Red Baraat Announce Festival of Colors March 28-29 Philly and NYC

We’re so happy to again be presenting our FESTIVAL OF COLORS. Last year the event sold out Le Poison Rouge in New York, and this year we’ve expanded to the larger Webster Hall and all the way into Philadelphia! Both shows will feature a full Red Baraat set and we’ll be introducing some friends we hope you’ll be as excited about as we are:

Thursday, March 28 – World Cafe Live, Philadelphia  BUY TICKETS NOW:

Friday, March 29 – Webster Hall, NYC  BUY TICKETS NOW:

Red Baraat

Parijat Desai Dance Company 

(Blending traditions is her way of reflecting the cultural overlaps she experiences as a South Asian American)

Vandana Jain

(As electronically versed as Röyksopp with the instrumental entrances and exits, each element rides on a roller coaster track in sync with the rest.  Blurring the lines, again, between pop vocals and thoughtful composition)

& A sneak peak at an upcoming film by Vijay Iyer & Prashant Bhargava.

Holi Celebration Mithai for the first 250 people to arrive from Bittersweet NYC.


Red Baraat at SXSW 2013

We’ll be making our first trip to Austin for SXSW 2013. The good people at the Austin American Statesman have perceptively made us a staff pick to see.

New Orleans… What Can We Say?

Our First Mardi Gras tour and it was EPIC.

The Blue Nile. Tipitinas’ biggest night of the year- Lundi Gras with Galactic.  Meeting the Big Chief. Parading through the Treme and French Quarter with Just Us krewe. Capping it off with two big sets at Hi Ho with the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra. Thanks to all our hosts, to everyone that came out, and to this wonderful city that has embraced us so… We leave a little frazzled, some of us bedazzled, and with full hearts ready to return to Congo Square on March 24RBParade.
