Bauls are the wandering mystic minstrels of undivided Bengal. They gained popularity in the so called society when they mystically sang and danced around, propagating the truth of life.
We can find them not only in Birbhum but also in Purba Bardhaman , Tarapith, Bankura , in North Bengal as well.

Though Baul Music goes beyond Folk Music and becomes. a way of life, talking about deep philosophies in simple language that contains many layers, and it is called twilight language or “sandhya bhasha”.

Dipannita Acharya is a prolific artist in the genre of folk music. However, she identifies herself and her music as “Baul Anuragi” and “Bhav Sangeet” respectively. Over the years, she has marvelled the audiences with a plethora of regional folk songs, especially those from Bengal, Assam, Rajasthan and Gujarat.

- Brief study about the path.
- About Guru Tattva with the example of the song of any poet.
- Teaching of that song
- Transliteration and translation of the song
