Prahlad Brahmachari
Victor (Japan) 1981
KVX-1106 (LP) Insert (thin stain)
sleeve: VG+(SRW,Rubbed corners, light soiling)
media : EX/EX(a slight dust noise)

This album was released in 1981 and features songs and performances of Baul, the traditional music of Bengal, which is located in the northeast of India and is now divided between the Indian states of West Bengal and Bangladesh. The songs are sung by Prahlad Brahmachari, a leading Baul singer, and accompanied by tabla, bansuri, and harmonium, it is a performance of religious songs with philosophical meanings of Baul, which has developed in its own way mainly in Bengal. Although it is an extension of Indian classical music, it has its own unique cultural characteristics, such as the soft singing style and the rhythm played with ankle bells. The instrumental music is also very pleasant to listen to, and I highly recommend it to people who like Don Cherry and other ethnic jazz musicians. The recording is also very good.
