Red Baraat, bhangra brass

I heard these guys sometime last year, then COMPLETELY forgot about them somehow. Red Baraat are a New York outfit that combines Indian bhangra and filmi music with the infectious grooves of a New Orleans brass band. It’s some of the most fun world music I’ve heard in a while, and npr.org has an entire streaming concert available here. For the more visually minded among you, I’m including a YouTube vid of them below.
