That Baraat Beat

Asian Wedding Baraat

बरात    برات

August has been a busy month for Asian Baraat processions.  If you are not familiar with a Baraat I'll explain.  In Northern Indian communities, it is customary for the groom to travel to the wedding venue on a grey horse accompanied by a procession of his family members, friends, and Dhol drummers.  At the entrance to the wedding venue the groom and his family are welcomed by the bride's parents and elders of the family.

Each of our weddings have been different, with the grooms wearing their wedding finery.  Danni always enjoyes the weddings and likes to dance as soon as the music and drums start.
