Gorbhanga: Evolution of a Music Hub

Gorbhanga village in Nadia district is home to the Fakirs, the bearers of the Baul-Fakiri tradition of Bengal and the creators of soulful, mellifluous music. They are the Mystics of the East seeking God in the human. For them, serving fellow humans is serving God. Bauls are minstrels whose songs and dances reflect the joy, love and longing for a mystical union with the Divine. Their music is their means to unite with the Supreme Being with a greater ease. Living the life of an esoteric, denouncing the material world, they urge people to rise above the divides created by caste, creed and religion to find peace and live in harmony with nature.

Gorbhanga Fakirs have inherited the tradition from their forefathers. In spite of this, changing times and the struggle for existence have robbed many of them of that legacy and forced them into menial and odd jobs. The Art for Life initiative nurtured their legacy by treating it as a ‘skill’ to revive and revitalize the tradition. The effort helped the artists hone their skills, documented the songs, and linked the artists directly with the market. Today, Gorbhanga has gradually evolved into a hub of Baul–Fakiri music and draws appreciative audiences as well as musicians from around the world who are interested in collaborations, exchanges and innovative projects.
