Who is Baul?

54 mins
7.8 / 10 (60)


An epic documentary film on the mystic music traditions of Bauls. The Bauls of Bengal have kept their philosophies alive for over 1000 years, but modern demands threaten their simple, enlightened lifestyles.

MUBI's take

For a thousand years, the Baul tradition has transcended its musical origins to offer a philosophical blend of spiritual inquiry and social commentary. This documentary examines the contemporary relevance of its mystic minstrels, who serve as poetic stewards of India’s syncretic religious culture.
