There is a film called Tagori 1986, about BabuKishan's aunt, Radharani Dasi. Babukishan was involved in both movies.. This is the oldest living lineage of Baul, there is no comparison with any of the new Bauls who are making up stories about lineages ect.. these made up lineage do not exist it is all story. They are singing songs from this lineage,  therefore they come from this lineage or they are singing Bangladeshi folk songs, and that is not Baul.

Why I say this is because the Bauls dress like this lineage, they sing the songs of this lineage, to make up stories on Baul at this point is a ruining a tradition that is almost extinct. There were so many people wandering around Bengal and they all were lumped together as Baul and this is not so. Baul is different from Fakir, Sai, Aula, Shah, Dervish??? Baul is Das Baul, Dasi Baul and anybody with the name Das Baul comes out of this lineage, Das and Dasi are Vaishnava. They are not Fakir, Sai, Aula, or Dervish those are Sufi... Baul accepts Sufi not the other way around, sufi does not necessarily accept Baul. Sufi is Sufi... Baul is Baul... 

A Baul accepts everybody, it is not necessarily so with Sufi, you do not often see a Sufi singing songs of Krishna and Radha talking about Krishna and Radha and Hinduism but you will see a Baul talking about Sufi, Christianity, Buddhism... Baul is based on Indian Philosophy, not Islam, it is based on the Bhagavad Gita.. and is as old as the Bhagavad Gita.
