The nine piece Brooklyn-based band Red Baraat team up with South Florida’s Latin jammers the Spam Allstars for a thrilling evening of world music that will have audiences musically trotting the globe and dancing in the aisles. The Village Voice calls Red Baraat “…a fiery blend of raucous Indian bhangra and funky New Orleans brass. The result, needless to say, is completely riotous, a blustery groove machine…”
Spam Allstars blend improvisational electronic elements and turntables with Latin, funk, hip hop and dub to create what they call an electronic descarga. It’s not a known genre. It’s hard to describe. It attracts many types of people. But as they look out and see people dancing salsa, next to break-dancers, and festival-goers driving for hours to catch a show — they know something very special is going on.
