Red Sun is the brainchild of Swiss violinist and composer Baiju Bhatt. The band thrives from a high energy creative output, paired with a world-music flavor. Red Sun’s music appears accessible,
catchy and refreshing. Leader Baiju Bhatt makes a potent point for where Jazz-Violin can go in 2017.
Bhatt manages his bandmates with a strong creative voice and vision, and forms a tight band complex, with a unique sound and outstanding repertoire.
Red Sun traces a journey from oriental heat to Swiss cool, Across this distance and affinity is discernable the outspokenness and expression of both musical cultures. Their current Europe Tour,
gives prominence to Red Sun’s rise. The second Album will be recorded in 2018.
