Kichu Din Mone Mone, is a Baul song from this lineage that has been appropriated!! Nabani Das Khyapa Baul poetry!!

Babu Kishan used to love when people sang his lineages Baul songs, what he never expected was the appropriation of them and commercial production. The listing of other 'fake lineages' and fake poets names while using his Grandfather & Guru's poetry. This is only the tip of the ice berg.

This has been going on for a long time but he never could foretell the wrong teachings and that people who followed his lineage would make up fake lineages and water down and teach wrong teachings about Baul. 

Since the internet there is a new wave of wanna be's who have done more harm that good. 

Kichchu Din Mone Mone was written by the one and only Nabani Das Khyapa Baul. When singing this song please do not add other peoples names, especially those that call themselves Baul. A authentic Baul is non stealing and then to say Baul do not care about who wrote the poetry is pure thievery. To make Baul generic and random is 'Cultural Appropriation' and then to have the nerve to fundraise in the name of Baul to preserve Baul? 

This lineage is indigenous to India, it really should be a crime taking an indigenous peoples identity, their songs, their style and then lying making up a lineage with a fake Baul guru who we know is not a Guru. Indigenous wisdom should never be stolen, their songs, their style, copying everything, taking the names off of the people who preserved Baul? Teaching wrong teachings, watering down and reducing Baul as indigenous peoples is a crime, when used to oneself, to promote oneself for fake fame. Time has changed.

""Indigenous peoples and individuals are free and equal to all other peoples and individuals and have the right to be free from any kind of discrimination, in the exercise of their rights, in particular that based on their indigenous origin or identity. Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination."

Nabani was Rabindranath Tagore's friend and the only Baul to initiate Tagore into this Baul lineage, he gave Tagore the Baul name Ravi (Robi) Das Baul, Tagore gave Nabani the name "Mirror of the sky and Khyepa Baul. Now everybody calls themselves Khepa LOL.

Yet others are making up stories when they have had nothing to do with Nabani or Tagore. 

The fist tenant of Baul: Tell the truth.  Do not name drop, poach their songs. if you do not know who the poet is but copy by listening over and over, we can see and then record his songs as if you are the one, and without giving credit you are a liar and a bold faced thief.

This song was recorded by Babu Kishan's father Purna Das Baul  in the 1960's at India's First Record company, Hindustan Records. Most Bauls songs that are sung today are either Nabani Das Khyapa Bauls poetry or Babu Kishan's poetry, for sure sung by Purna Das Baul and for sure dancing with Ektara, Baya and Nupoor is Nabani Style dance. 

Yet, we see the new Baul men and women using everything and randomizing Baul by saying Baul Masters? Babu Kishan knows who wrote the poetry if you do not you are not a Baul and should never be fundraising to preserve Baul.

Kicchu Din Mone Mone was written by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and it is part of this lineage Baul the only lineage, there is not other lineage of Baul. Lineage Baul Parampara Sampradaya the only Baul lineage. 

This is a very simple recording of my Grandfather Nabani Das Khyappa Baul song, singing by me his grandson Babukishan, aka Krishnendu Das Baul.  The sound is not great but it was recorded in 2002 in California on a simple recorder.

This song belongs to this lineage and credit to Baul Saint Sri Nabani Das Khyapa Baul. No one would even know about this song if it were not for my family rather than making up new lineages, tell the truth, know the truth.

New Baul singers are making up stories and new lineage that never existed before and leaving out where the songs originated from or putting in different poets names.  

Please have respect for this lineages Baul songs, if you sing or record songs from this lineage, please say who the Baul poet is and if you do not know, do not make it up. This is 100% Sri Nabani Das Khyepa Baul song.
