Based in NYC, Red Baraat is the first and only dhol 'n' brass group consisting of 9 members playing all acoustic instruments, drums and horns, with an infectious live sound. Find out more about us: www.redbaraat.com.
We want to record our 2nd CD, "Shruggy Ji".
We have nearly 15 songs that have yet to be recorded, mostly originals by all band members and some fun arrangements of Bollywood songs (Tenu Leke, Chunari Chunari, Lal Meri Pat, Mast Kalandar).
We're looking to record "Shruggy Ji" in February 2011, but only with your help!
We plan to record for 2 days, 10-hours each, at Kaleidoscope Sound Studio in Union City, NJ. After recording, we will need to do post-production (edit, mix and master all the tracks) back in NYC before finally compiling a master CD to send for manufacturing, along with artwork for the CD packaging.
Because it's the Bhangra Funk band you all know and love, or will grow to ;)
Because you believe in good music.
Because you love to dance.
Because you are a gracious human being.
In order to complete this project, we need to hire a recording engineer and studio, then hire separate engineers to mix and master the tracks. We will also need to hire a photographer and graphic artist to put our CD package together and finally we will need to cover manufacturing costs in order to press 2,000 copies. We are looking to our fans to help us fund this exciting new CD. In return for your participation and generosity we want to offer many unique experiences, opportunities, and gifts. We are excited to share the making of this album with you!
