Released:
Label: Sinj Records
Like any world pop band worth its post-cultural hyphen, Red Baraat makes albums that are like globe-snaking street parties. And the bhangra-n-brass band's second album is a fairly accurate recreation of their kinetic, eclectic live shows. Shruggy Ji bounces from NOLA jazz to Afrofunk to hip-hop, with the chunka-chunka bhangra beat bumping along underneath. But while cuts like "Burning Instinct" are as inviting as a Mardi Gras parade or Diwali party (those invigorating cymbals!), elsewhere the band can feel a bit restrained by the time and space constraints of the album format.
