Who is Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das aka Baul Guru

Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul

KD Babu Kishan

Babu Kishan is the Creator of 'Baul Fusion' 
- from early 1970's over 2 decades before anybody else?
He is a prolific Music Composer since early 1970's. 

KD Babu Kishan Recorded, Produced, Composed Music for the 1st recorded 'Hanuman Chalisa' singing by Hari Om Sharan which is the most listened to Devotional Music in the History of India with over 3 Billion listens.

New Book to be released soon 2023 or early 2024, where Babu Kishan will tell all, speak about everything, open and honest.

Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul has already preserved and archived Baul, decades ago. 

The archiving and Preservation of this one and only Lineage of Vaishnava Tantric Bauls of Birbhum Bengal has been done, preserved since the 1960's by Babu Kishan and through the Sanskrit oral tradition for many generations going back a very long time. There are no Bauls that can speak oral Sanskrit today, either lack of interest or the Bauls today are not from Baul, most just copy all from this lineage, with lack of proper training, most just talk and learn from books, if that?

It is a lie to say Bauls do not care who the poets are? It is more appropriate to say, if you are calling yourself a Baul and you Guru as a Baul Guru, and going around saying Bauls do not care who wrote the poetry, you are the biggest Cultural Appropriator.  One who says that is ignorant and just using Baul, making it up and 'faking it tile they make it' an actor, tourist attraction or trying to be a Baba or Maa, collecting donations and using people? 

 What people write about Baul is wrong, they take a truth and twist it for their own agenda. 
The truth will be told. 

The inconstant speculations or name dropping will become evident eventually, the holes in your theft will become obvious?

This lineage is the only Lineage of Baul, Vaishnava Tantric Baul, the path of the Avadhut! 
The only lineage of Das and Dasi and Ektara, Baya and Nupoor, Nabani Das Khyapa Bauls created own style.

Music ComposerBabu Kishan is still #77 out of 80 Music Composers in India in the 1980's.

His two brothers are now only learning who Babu Kishan is, they had no idea the body of work that Babu produced and they never cared as long as he kept sending money.

 Forging his signature, selling his property behind his back, talking nasty behind his back, as an outsider to this family, I am shocked at what has gone on. 

Babu has heard it all others have told him, he heard what you said, to everybody, every person that he brought to the Calcutta house after leaving that house they  would say to  Babu, your family talks behind your back and they do not have anything good to say, please do not bring me there again?

 It should be known Babu brought many of his Bollywood friends to meet his Calcutta family and upon leaving the house many would say, 'your family does not talk kindly of you.' To me this is toxic, I suppose there was a time when they loved him, perhaps that time was when he was stupid enough to give and do everything for them without expecting anything, except a little love.

Krishnendu at that time used to ignore what people said, blocking it out and usually getting angry at the person who would say anything against his family.

Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das started his life in Indian Cinema at a very young age in West Bengal India. 

He changed his name to Babu Kishan so that he did not 'ride on the coat tails' of his famous fathers name.  

There were also 2 directors named Suraj Sanima and Mahesh Bhatt who had a difficult time pronouncing his name Krishnendu so they called him Babu Kishan all the time and it became his brand name in the entertainment market.

In 2007 he was awarded the Lifetime of Achievement Award in Indian Cinema (Bollywood) for his dedication to Indian Music and Film. Bollywood Buddy, Mumbai
