In 2012 Asian Arts Agency produced the debut UK tour for New York-based band Red Baraat.

The tour was an instant hit, with widespread attention from venues and audiences. The project toured at nine venues in London, Manchester, Leicester, Birmingham, and Bristol, as well as at some major festivals and events, including Edinburgh Mela, Fusion Asia Festival, and Bestival reaching over 40,000 people over 9 events.

This tour also contributed to a landmark cultural event, as an official part of the London 2012 Festival, when the band played at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games in Trafalagar Square.

Across the nine dates, the tour was met with substantial praise from critics, audiences, and venues alike.
