Event Details

Red Baraat Festival of Colors is an immersive celebration through music, dance and visuals.
Now in its 8 th year, the March 2019 festival will feature Vidya Vox and Red Baraat on an 8-city tour.
Red Baraat Festival of Colors celebrates the Hindu holiday of Holi with a colorful array of
South Asian sounds. Traditionally, Holi is marked by public gatherings of families and
strangers sharing songs, dance, and the exchange of ‘colors’ –colorful dry powder or colored
water playfully thrown amongst the crowds of revelers. It signifies the victory of good over
evil, the arrival of spring, and for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget
and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships.
Red Baraat Festival of Colors debuted in 2012 at a sold out Le Poisson Rouge in New York
City and it has since expanded to over a dozen cities in the United States. Each year,
bandleader and dhol player, Sunny Jain curates a night of music highlighting the South Asian
Diaspora through a diverse range of styles. Past festivals have included DJ Rekha,
Falu, Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi (a film by the late, award-winning filmmaker, Prashant
Bhargava, with score by Grammy-nominated composer, Vijay Iyer), Brooklyn Raga Massive
All-Stars, Rupa & The April Fishes, Rajna Swaminathan’s RAJAS, Mandeep Sethi, DJ Ushka,
Vandana Jain, Parijat Desai Dance Company, DJ Ayes Cold, DJ Anjali, DJ Prashant, Madame
