Bapi Das Baul and Madol recently released their album Lalan Palan at an event held at The Press Club, Kolkata.
Bapi Das Baul is the son of the eminent Baul singer Purna Das Baul. Speaking at the occasion, he said “I try mentioning the fact that I am his son. He is a legend in his own right. I fear that my experimentation often may not go down well with the audience. They may then compare me with my father and think I have been doing injustice to his legacy”.
The album has ten songs which have been sung by Bapi Das Baul and Madol. The music has been arranged and composed by Bapi Das Baul. The special feature of this album is that the songs of Lalan have been sung in Hindi. This is a unique initiative of Bapi Das Baul.
Bapi Das Baul is known for his fusion work. He has worked with groups like Senses, Baul Bishwa, Zap Mamma, State of Bengal and others. He has performed in cities like Paris and France and has quite a good fan following abroad.
With Lalan-Palan, Bapi Das Baul hopes to reach out to more listeners in Kolkata.
