Jainsounds officially started on my wedding day, August 27th, 2005. Inspired by the marching bands of India that mesmerized me as a child during summers in Delhi, I set out to learn and notate the traditional baraat repertoire for my very own baraat. When the special day came, 30 of my musician friends led the procession to the mandap with a glorious sound that set off a chain reaction of inquiries around the US for this band. Initially I called it Red Baraat Marching Band, but it has since been renamed to Jina Brass Band (the Red Baraat story is a story unto itself!).
