The Baul Mystic Drum, called Gubgubi or Khamak, was renamed (Ananda Lahari) only by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul who added a 2nd string thus 2 strings now!

Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das BAUL
2007 Fairfax California, using his own hand made Dafli..this is one of Babu Kishan's style, no other Bauls use this style.
His 2 daughters when they were little hand painted his drums.

The Khamak or Ananda Lahari named only by 
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul
This Mystic Drum only comes from this lineage.

Dotara introduced into Baul in the 1940's by Radharani Dasi's husband, Gopal Das Baul the son of the Ekachakra Temple in Ekachakra Birbhum.
Radharani was Nabani's daughter.

Before this no Bauls played the Dotara.

Ananda Lahari named by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, who added a second string, it only had one string previously.
aka called the Kamak or Gubgubi. It was only Nabani who called this drum the Ananda Lahari, it should be known that the name came from this lineage, not another.

The Mystic Drum.

These instruments are empowered, they are the Yantra's of Baul.

Ektara (Gopi Yantra) or Gopi Chand, Baya 'side drum', and 'Nupoor (ankle bells)' was only (Nabani Das Khyapa Baul) style he is the only Baul who created this style. Only from this one and only Lineage.

 Nabani created this style just as his Grandson Babu Kishan created the patchwork Guduri dress that all Baul's copy, if not now in the past.

All from this one and only Lineage.

We will be documenting all the songs from this lineage, Babu is the only one who knows because he is the only one who has preserved this lineage decades ago.

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul's pictures are still used to today as a symbol of Baul, the picture Rabindranath Tagore took.
