Parmajon is a hip-hop group on IMFree ENT. Coming straight out of Brooklyn, NY, Parmajon consists of Jonton, Crushaman and KDB. The name Parmajon comes from a comical story of hunger on the way to a local Burger King.
In just three short years, the pioneering Brooklyn dhol 'n' brass party juggernaut RED BARAAT have made a name for themselves as one of the best live bands playing anywhere in the world. Led by dhol drummer Sunny Jain, the nine piece (comprised of dhol ((double-sided barrel shaped North Indian drum slung over one shoulder)) drumset, percussion, a sousaphone, and 5 horns) melds the infectious North Indian rhythm Bhangra with a host of sounds, namely funk, go-go, latin, and jazz. Simply put, Sunny Jain and Red Baraat have created a sound so powerful it has left the band in its own utterly unique and enviable class.

The Village Voice :: “...completely riotous, a blustery groove machine with the comforting hoot of a tuba...an unstoppable blend of Bollywood hijacks and funk freakier than anything Madlib picked up on his trip to India.
