2 Great Bands With Trumpet: Red Baraat & Beirut

I’ve been a fan of both Beirut and Red Baraat after catching them at an outdoor festival in Chicago a few years ago. Very cool sounds influence by Indian music and instruments. Sonny Singh is the trumpeter. Red Baraat has a new album out which you can hear here. Their disocgraphy is here.

Beirut has some good stuff, too. A mellower vibe. Zach Condon is the lead singer and one of the trumpet players (here he’s on a rotary trumpet). Not sure of the other trumpet player’s name. Let me know in the comments if you do! Below is another Tiny Desk Concert. My favorite album of Beirut’s is their debut album Gulag Orkestar. Find their whole discography here.

  1. I’ve been trying to find bands that have a similar aural aesthetic as Beirut forever- and Red Baraat has just captured my heart. Their music sounds so heartfelt and sincere!
