Barot has composed music for films and won awards doing that. He has produced and played numerous other artists. Finally he is working just for himself. Among the guests on his record are Zakir Hussain and John McLaughlin. Bada Boom consists of four original songs and two re-imaginings of Indian traditional music.
Barot is the son of a classical Indian dancer and was inspired by fusion and prog rock. He spent time in both India and the UK so he has a foot in both Indian and Western music.
