Bannabagram Baul Ashram

Knowing yourself is the essence of BaulFakiri music, which reflects the joy, love and longing for mystical union with the Divine. 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. After working with about 1500+ Baul Fakirs across Nadia, Murshidabad, Birbhum, Bardhaman and Bankura, we felt the need of developing an Akhra in Bardhaman-Birbhum area, where visitors can also stop by and listen to Baul songs,and thus we developed a Baul Fakir Ashram at Bannabagram in Ausgram near Guskara.
