    You will find them everywhere in Shantiniketan - at the Poush Mela, Joydev Mela (the biggest gathering of the bauls) or sitting under the shade of a big old tree singing Ekla Cholo Re. Bengal's mystical and mysterious wandering minstrels earn their living by singing their simple yet philosophical songs to the accompaniment of the ektara, dotara, dugi (small clay drum), mandira and kartaal (cymbals) and the bamboo flute. Their music transcends language, so It’s easy to lose yourself in their unbridled and rustic songs about life and love.
