Music: The Bauls of Bengals

The Original Rock Musicians:
Embryo's Christian Burchard narrates the following: "The Baul musicians live outside the caste system which governs Indian culture. Like the Saddus, the Bauls reject possessions on religious grounds. They travel throughout India on foot carrying only their musical instrument. The Bauls create their songs spontaneously in front of their audience. They want to transport their public into another world."

 Maki Kazumi and Binod Das Baul and friends

And I like this the best of all.
