Paban Das Baul : real sugar

They say music has no language. A collaboration between Baul singer Paban Das Baul and guitarist Sam Mills, the album Real Sugar says it all. The songs featured here are sung at fairs and festivals in the villages of Bengal and wherever Bauls congregate. Baul music has never been a caste or classical tradition and has always been a motivating, rhythmic way of reaching across boundaries and creating a resonance for anyone receptive to it, regardless of their background. Baul songs are there to wake people up to their own hidden treasures, and within these modern compositions, Paban Das Baul has mingled many Bengali traditions, Baul, Fakiri, Panchali and Pahari, giving another view into the sheer beauty of the songs.
