baul music

Bauls are musicians from rural Bengal, both Hindu and Muslim. Their songs are devotional and mesmeric. Their tradition is an oral one, and according to Wikipedia, they 'themselves attribute the lack of historical records of themselves to their reluctance of leaving a trace behind.'

These performers were part of an awareness day for Climate Change held at Dakshinepan Mall.
