Baharat is a band from Brooklyn who play music influenced by Eastern cultures. Common among those cultures is the use of mircotones not found in Western music and sympathetic strings that resonate without being played directly. From the Middle East: oud, an Arabic lute ancestor to the guitar; frame drum and darbuka, a drum in the goblet family popular in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. From India: the sarangi, a short-necked bowed instrument known for resembling the human voice and the sitar, perhaps the most recognizable Indian instrument. Baharat seeks to expose the listener to music which provides a sound that is both familiar to the cultures they borrow from and unique unto itself.
