Red Baraat first Festival of Colors celebration happened in 2012 at a sold out Le Poison Rouge in New York City. Now in its third year, the event has expanded to four cities including New York; happening for the first time this year in Washington DC and New Orleans. The festival will return for the second time to Philadelphia. Each year Red Baraat curates a night of music and art. This year Red Baraat will be joined by Falu, the critically lauded singer whose take on Indian classical and folk music is entirely of the moment thanks to a captivating stage presence and killer live band. Mandeep Sethi is a California based MC and an active contributor to India’s blooming hip-hop scene. He may be familiar to Red Baraat fans after guesting with the band at Central Park Summerstage and at their San Francisco club shows. It is a diverse line up, celebrating and helping to expose South Asian artists working in a range of styles and mediums. Fans can expect a full set from Red Baraat at all shows. Check out how last year’s celebration at Webster Hall in New York went down.
