PAST: Outdoor Summer Concert Series WED nights at Strathmore continues with Red Baraat from India this WED, August 10th at 7:00pm, Free
Baraat is Hindi for a marriage procession – and the joyous dancing and singing that ensues therein.Red Baraat is a lively mix of traditional Indian and modern American music. Here the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra meets the sound of the funkiest brass band imaginable: dhol (double-sided, barrel-shaped North Indian shoulder drum), plus drumset, percussion, sousaphone and horns. Enjoy the tantalizing mix of fresh originals and Bollywood favorites.
About the concert series: Travel around the world on a summertime serenade without leaving the comfort of your beach chair or picnic blanket -- that's the magic of Strathmore's free outdoor concerts. Eight international acts, eight Wednesday evenings, eight opportunities to enjoy music in the sweet summer breeze. Free and open to the public.
Note: There will not be a concert on Wednesday, August 17th.
Metro: Grosvenor - Strathmore, follow the walkway out of the metro station to the left entrance of the Metro Garage. Take the stairs or elevators to the 4th level and walk across the sky bridge into the Music Center’s main entrance.
