Purna Das Baul is a real folk hero in his country, where he is referred to as “the King of Bauls”. The Bauls are wandering mystical musicians from Bengal. They sing in a style both athletic and sensual, and use very simple instruments (including the ektara, whose single string symbolizes the unity with God), which manage to create peculiar textures and  remarkably varied rhythms.  
Purna Das Baul represents the seventh generation in a dynasty of prestigious musicians. His father was Nabani Das Baul, a friend and inspiration for philosopher Rabindranath Tagore.  He’s frequently  travelled abroad in the 60’s and 70’s (poet Allen Ginsberg invited him to the States, and introduced him to Bob Dylan). This album was recorded in Brussels in 93 with a group of five musicians, including his son Bhapi Das Baul.
