- Bauls are the original hipsters from Bangladesh (not India, not Pakistan, not Myanmar, but Bangla-effing-desh), the only difference is they don't show-off, drink expensive esoteric coffee blends or wear hard to find parkas with a thick scarf made from Mongolian bison or something. No, these guys are genuine mystics, wandering travelers and spiritual students of the great Lalon Shah. Sure, they do smoke a joint or two every now and then, but that isn't the only thing that makes their songs transcend beyond time and place. A mixture of religion, a pinch of humanity and a dash of local legends goes into making a proper baul song. Then again, it's incomplete without the human touch, that of someone ingrained in the Lalon philosophy.
I'm just trying to sound deep and impressive...go listen to the song people :)
Artist: Baul Tun Tun Shah
Song: Dhoro re odhor chadere (how do I touch the moon that is so untouchable)
