This is the brief record of a musical encounter. Music is of the essence for the Bauls, an outsider spiritual discipline found in Bengal. The performance of their vast lyric poetic tradition is transcendental and inspirational and relates to their unique spiritual practices. Cultural activist and agro-ecologist Dr. Debal Deb arranged in late 2011 a cultural encounter in which Bauls, Nimai Baul and Gamcha Baba, from his own region of West Bengal, would travel to Bangladesh (East Bengal) in order to meet, play music with and create a relationship with their fellows to the east whose performance tradition has developed in subtly different ways.
