Red Baraat performs live
- Red Baraat is: an eight-piece band led by dhol-playing frontman Sunny Jain
- A dhol is: a double-sided drum that hangs from the shoulder
- Genres in the band's musical stew: punjabi bhangra, jazz, go-go, brass funk, and hip-hop
- Their goal: to inspire joy and unity in their audiences
- How the group got its start: playing in North Indian wedding processions, called baraats
- Places they've played since then: TED Conference 2012, the White House, and Trafalgar Square during London's Paralympic Games
- The most difficult instrument they tour with: the sousaphone
- So how do they bring it along?: the band members frequently borrow sousaphones from local schools
- Two things The Village Voice has called Red Baraat: "completely riotous" and "a blustery groove machine"
Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
During the day, the concrete heights of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts tower over the waters of the Milwaukee River like an imposing, postmodern fortress. As night falls, however, and patrons meander toward their evening's entertainment, the building’s façade glows with colorful, scintillating lights that hint at the eclectic performances inside. The elegant Uihlein Hall regularly hosts such august organizations as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Florentine Opera Company, whereas smaller, more intimate venues such as the Todd Wehr Theater situate audiences close to the stage so they can immerse themselves in dramas or hear the wail of a set builder who smashed his thumb with a hammer.
