Parvathy Baul and Somjit Dasgupta
One of the most exciting contemporary performers of Baul music and the leading female voice in a male-dominated tradition.

Born into a Bengali Brahmin family, Mousumi Parial was classically trained but her musical career took a dramatic change of direction at 16 when she encountered a blind street musician performing the traditional folk songs of the mystic Baul minstrels.

Struck by the spiritual intensity of the music, she changed her name and spent the next few years studying under a series of gurus to emerge as one of the most exciting contemporary performers of Baul music and the leading female voice in a male-dominated tradition.

A multi-instrumentalist and dancer as well as a singer, she has since performed in forty countries around the world.India
