Baul mela at Jadavpur, Kolkata, Jan 2013

I had the most wonderful weekend!

Saw some great baul performances at the annual baul mela. It is organized at the Shaktigarh math in Jadavpur, Kolkata (WB), every year in January. This time thankfully it happened to be a weekend (January 5th-6th 2013)!

Shaktigarh math looked like mini Shantiniketan. The highlight of course was baul performers mesmerizing the audience with wonderfully soulful compositions, and the mela with lots of food to gorge on, and handicrafts on sale from Shantiniketan.

I am sharing a video of one of the baul performances.Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did.
