There are several types of drums that are typically found in South Asia, one of these is called the Dhol. The dhol is a double-headed wooden drum commonly played during rituals, festivities, and gatherings, including Indian wedding processions. Often attached to a strap, it is worn by the player with the strap slung over the shoulder or neck.

A Baraat is a wedding procession for the groom. Commonly observed in South Asian weddings, the groom travels to the wedding venue accompanied by live music and celebration. Most of the time, the Baraat is accompanied with music from dhol players for hire. A Baraat is something that wedding guests often look forward to because of the festivities and spectacle associated with it.

The Dhol player normally plays Indian tunes during a Baraat processional in an Indian wedding procession. The type of music played, however, greatly depends on the preference of the couple. There are Baraat processionals that move along to modern music while some choose to stick to tradition and play Indian music. Our Baraat band can play your preferred music and accommodate special requests. At times,  to hype the crowd. But sometimes, there is a Mobile DJ who plays an Indian Tunes, thus the Dhol Player plays along with the DJ.

Our Baraat band is often composed of a Dhol player, two trumpeters, and a saxophonist since they often play traditional Indian music. For modern/contemporary music, the Baraat band can be accompanied by a mobile DJ where the DJ moves along with the procession.
