Red Baraat. the Sunny Jain-led dhol n' brass octet from Brooklyn who combine Northern Indian party music with funk, hip-hop and New Orleans brass band strut, play the World Cafe Live tonight.

I took the picture of the band - or at least as much of it as I could fit in the frame - during an ecstatic, muscular  showcase at a small club called Speakeasy in Austin, Texas during SXSW. An item I wrote about that night, when I also saw the Malian blues band Terakraft, is here.

To get a taste of what Red Baraat does, watch their NPR Tiny Desk Concert below. Show details about tonight's 'Festival of Colors' are here.
