Bollywood Festival begins * 6:30 PM
Performance * 7:30 PM

FSU Clocktower Quad


It's a Bhangra dance party on the campus of Frostburg State University and you are invited! Come shake your hips to the exhilarating music of Red Baraat, which the Chicago Reader has called "fun as hell." Led by masterful dhol drummer Sunny Jain, Red Baraat's riveting sound and stage presence create an unforgettable experience for the audience. Comprised of dhol (a double-sided, barrelshaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder), drum set, percussion, sousaphone and five horns, Red Baraat melds the infectious North Indian rhythms of Bhangra with the sounds of funk, go-go, Latin and jazz. Since their inception in October 2008, Red Baraat has delivered powerful performances at globalFEST, Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and the New Orleans Jazz Festival, to name just a few. This FREE outdoor performance begins with a Bollywood Festival  featuring food, activities and dance inspired by the culture of India.


Presented with Student and Educational Services, Student and Community Involvement and University Programming Council.

What is Bhangra? What is Red Baraat? According to the National Public Radio program "All Songs Considered," it's "a crazy blast of fun." Come meet with the artists of Red Baraat to learn all about their riotous, joyous blend of music that fuses multiple cultures to create a true party of a performance. 


This tour engagement of Red Baraat is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council. The Cultural Events Series is supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive, and is sponsored in part by the Allegany Arts Council with funds from the Maryland State Arts Council.
