Event Details

The mystic Baul minstrels from rural Bangladesh and West Bengal are a syncretic religious sect known for their freedom from convention and spontaneous expression of love for the divine. Their music has, for centuries, been a huge influence on Bengali culture, particularly the poetry and music of Nobel Prize laureate Rabindranath Tagore. Dating back to the eighth century, the Baul tradition weaves together threads from Sahajiya Buddhism, Turkish Sufism and Bengali Hinduism. This powerful musical form has been recognised as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
