Bauls are not Gypsy's! Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul called his Album of Baul music Gypsy India.


Bauls are not Gypsy's they are poets, philosophers, musicians, and lovers of the divine. In 2004 Babu Kishan recorded an album in Woodstock and he called it Gypsy India, there has been some confusion as whether Bauls were Gypsy's they are not it is the name he creatively game to his album of Baul songs.

In 2007 we were in Delhi and visited the Cultural Minister of India at his office. He used to be Babu's Economics Professor at Calcutta University and a family friend. Babu gave him a copy of his album Gypsy India, he was totally perplexed as to why Babu would call it Gypsy India, he said you are from a long ancient tradition of Baul, Bauls are way beyond, they are the highest philosophers, why would you call it Gypsy India... ?? So to make it perfectly clear Gypsy India is the name of the album, Gypsy is not Baul.
Check out the Gypsy India Myspace page.... it is both Baul and Bollywood..
