Baul History

 Baul history with Indian Cinema!

Babu Kishan is the the first Baul to have a tangible long time history with Indian Cinema on all levels.

Some have sung a line or two in a film and make a big deal about it.

Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das is the only Baul who has had a history in Indian Music.

He created Baul Fusion since the early 1970's long before, decades before any Baul Singer can even get close too. 


One Story:

Babu Kishan has been one of the very few who have been in Lata Manghaskars Music room and of course he was a monk in the Ramakrishna order in Calcutta for 12 years. Notice that Lata has a huge photo of Vevekananda and a smaller one of Ramakrishna above her altar.

Babu Kishan has also, recorded and composed music for Lata, her sisters Usha and Asha Bhosle who was married to RD Burman.

RD Burman was Babu Kishan's Indian Cinema Music Guru for over 12 years.

Notice the Gopi Yantra aka Baul Ektara in the corner of Lata's music room against the wall. Gopi Yantra comes only from this one and only lineage.

Lata did not allow just anybody into her music room, you may have been in house, but very few were allowed in her music room.
