Baul songs in Vernacular Birbhum Bengali and Baul Kirtan in Sanskrit and Bengali!
Baul songs from this lineage, these songs and the tune are from Babu Kishan's lineage and his family. Most Bauls now sing them but have no idea who the author is.
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul wrote the lyrics and tune of the below songs. This lineage is Gosai or Gasain, Rasaraj Gosai is an Uncle of Nabani's.
This one and only Lineage is oral Sanskrit, yes they could read manuscripts which include all Vaishnava Agama's, all Upanishads, Indian Philosophy which is distilled into simple songs in vernacular Birbhum Bengali.

"Kichchu Din Mone Mone" was officially recorded by my father Purna Das Baul in the 1960's at India's First Record company, Hindustan Records.
Kicchu Din Mone Mone was written by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and it is part of this Lineage Baul. It is sad that others feel the need to cheat taking this song without respect.
If you do not know who the author of this song it, you are absolutely a Nakal Fake Baul and have culturally Appropriated this song from this lineage. Putting a fake name on it is inexcusable. This will be addressed in a big way in the media, enough is enough, this has gone on far too long.
5. Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai - Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai - (Nabani Das Baul's uncle) Rasaraj Gosai was a prominent Sanskrit ORAL Scholar and Baul poet in Bengali history. Never married and the greatest tantric and tantric poet. Music composed by Nabani Das Baul and singing by Purna Das Baul who is the first to record this Baul poetry. I just want to let you know this is not a Bengali folk song, none of these songs are folk songs they are Baul songs Spiritual songs. These songs are a deep meditation and Sadhana and are a discourse with a deep philosophical meaning.
These songs have all been recorded many years back at Hindustan Records which was the first official Music Company in India. Purna Das Baul has recorded all and many others. This is how Baul became famous, through first Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, Purna Das Baul and Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul. There are many more songs, however, a separate book will have to include all the music of this lineage. There are thousands of songs.
Three Indian Bengali Cinema Music Directors, Pankaj Mallick, Timir Baran, Raichand Boral, recorded Purna Das Baul an award winning India Vocalist and the Greatest Baul singer. These music directors respected ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’, they were his friends and well wishers.
Approximately twenty times Ghole Malee Ghole Malee was recorded worldwide and eighteen times it was recorded by Babukishan and everytime it was recorded it was a super duper hit.
Today these songs are sung by all Bauls without any of them giving credit to the Baul who wrote it ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’ it is interesting because it was ‘Purna Das Baul ‘and this lineage that own these famous songs but yet they sing them and say they are from a different lineage?
This was never a problem previously but I think now that so many ‘fake Bauls’ and stories are being made up, the hijacking and actor Bauls who claim and follow this lineage but never say the truth. It is time for the truth of Baul to come forward to preserve this tradition before it is lost forever.
These are not Bengali Folk Songs they are spiritual songs from this family, this lineage. They should be protected in proper context as respect to this lineage.
Gaudiya Math and Iskcon hijacked ‘Vaishnava Baul Kirtan’ and song and dance distorting this tradition. There is something that people need to understand Chaitanya was a scholar, he was not a poet or Baul, it was Nityananda and his lineage going back thousands of years that were the poets, philosophers and musical, the original Hare Krishna singers and dancers.
