Red Baraat's Bhangra-A-Go-Go

Apr 29, 2015

Red Baraat's Bhangra drum and brass rhythms originate in the Punjabi wedding celebrations of Northern India, but the music is seasoned with a Brooklyn, NY mixture of funk, go-go, Latin, and jazz. Festivals and concert venues across the world have highlighted the band's party sound. Host John Floridis visits with the group during their tour stop in the Bitterroot valley.
