Red Baraat was one of the most exciting bands that I’ve had the chance to listen to in 2013, thanks to their amazing album Shruggy Ji, which was one of my favorites for that year. They hail from Brooklyn and their musical modus operandi is, pretty much, this one: get all sorts of epic-themed jams and infuse them with a hearty dose of bhangra sounds. It’s worked extremely well for them so far and, judging by the songs that they’ve released from their upcoming album, Gaadi Of Truth, they’ll secure yet another masterpiece in 2015.
Bhangra Pirates is the latest piece that they’ve uncovered and, as expected, it’s a superbly crafted song full of vigor, sublimely orchestrated and, an all around wicked piece of music. Listen to it below and I dare you not to take out your saris, your churidaars, your dhotis, your lungis or whatever, and blast this song all day long.
Gaadi Of Truth is available starting the 20th of January.
