Who is Baul
Filmmaker Sairam Sagiraju, together with Grammy award winning composer Ricky Kej and historian Vikram Sampath set out on a monumental journey to document the philosophies and musical lineage of the Bauls of Bengal. For centuries Bauls have passed on their traditions of inner knowledge and spirituality through song and music. Declared as an Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, The Bauls of Bengal have kept their philosophies alive for over a 1000 years, but modern demands threaten their simple, enlightened lifestyles.
