AllMusic Review by

Baul mysticism, which drew from both Sufism and unorthodox Hinduism, flourishes in both Hindu and Muslim Bengal. Bauli song and qawwali share religious ecstaticism and links with secular popular music, and itinerant Bauls can be quite as passionate in performance. This music is in the more restrained tradition of the Bauli religious centers, but has quite as much flexibility and power.
