Baul Tantra, Mantra, (Gopi Yantra) vs Neo Tantric Sex?
*Baul is extinct, there is only one Lineage of Baul and Babu Kishan is ready to speak out with the release of his new book, he has always helped and inspired new Baul singers but there is a limit and what he see's today is 'blatant cultural
mis-appropriation' of his lineage, reducing Baul, when a person or group takes advantage and 'rides on the coat tails' of a marginalized group taking their names off of history and her-story making claims that are not true, that is Cultural Appropriation.
Babu Kishan has been preserving this Oldest ONE and ONLY Lineage of Baul since he was born over 50 years ago and has seen it all, he has heard it all and wants to clarify what is going on today, the making up of Lineages, the outright theft of his Lineage with the intention of making up stories, watering down and reductionism is a real concern when preserving his Lineage* Baul has no roots in Turkey, The Bhagavad Gita did not come from Turkey, The MahaVidya did not come from Turkey?
Even though people are liking but they mostly do not have any training in Baul music or musical ability, of course they screwing the wonderful lineage of Baul! We didn’t have internet back then and it was so difficult to communicate and travel around the world. The hard time we had a hard time we had was to make was to make a road very easier for new \comers!! From what I hear they (the new Baul singers) are not Baul Masters and need voice lessons, beyond voice lessons, development of voice quality, you cannot even sing in a cord or track! Just singing Sakhi re…… then what, or trying be more tourist attractions spinning hair around and theatrical Bauls then Sadhana?
They need more and more practise, all my life I composed music for World's top musicians and recorded singer like Lata Mangaskar and Asha Bhosle and many other. You can call me egotistical but it is my lineage I am an award winning music composer. I know tone and pitch and you are way, way out of tune. Be a Baul do great work, help people and inspire people but don’t make up 4 generations and sing the songs from my lineage giving other poets names it has already been recorded and documented before you were born. If someone gave you miss information that is not my problem it is yours.Please do the practise and don't makeup stories and drama, just be true Baul!! Love u all, my blessing with all my brothers and sisters, don't try to be Nabani Das Khyapa Baul or Baul Samrat Purna Das just salute them have a great respect for them they are the one who gave you a chance to be Baul!!
Joy Guru!! Don't even try to be them, you cannot even dream!! You don't even know how was hard to making this Baul from a village to International platform!! Not easy, and of course only are one which is the last oldest Baul Lineage in Bengal and World!! Don't make stories, first learn how to sing and do Sadhana of Baul!! Just keep focus on what you are doing! Who can sing like Purna Das Baul, Manju Dasi, Radharani Dasi, Brajabala Dasi or any of my lineage? We are the only lineage, I can tell you who everybody is and where they came from except for the new Bauls who are young and now I am seeing these bizarre stories.
