Shofi Mondol a Baul from Kushtia BanglaDesh sings Graam Chaara Oyi Ranga Maatir Poth with Bidisha, recorded live @ The Peninsula Studios.
This is a composition by Robindranath Tagore. In 1890 Tagore began managing his vast ancestral estates in Shelaidaha (today a region of Bangladesh); he was joined by his wife and children in 1898.
Tagore released his Manasi poems (1890), among his best-known work. As Zamindar Babu, Tagore criss-crossed the riverine holdings in command of the Padma, the luxurious family barge. He collected mostly token rents and blessed villagers who in turn honoured him with banquets—occasionally of dried rice and sour milk. The period 1891–1895, Tagore's Sadhana period, named after one of Tagore's magazines, was his most productive; in these years he wrote more than half the stories of the three-volume, 84-story Galpaguchchha. Its ironic and grave tales examined the voluptuous poverty of an idealised rural Bengal. He met Gagan Harkara, through whom he became familiar with Baul Lalon Shah, whose folk songs greatly influenced Tagore. Tagore worked to popularise Lalon's songs. ShofiBhai is one of the finest Baul singers and what makes him special is his ascetic simplicity. He lives in Kushtia BanglaDesh, the home of the great Saint LalonShahFakir. He was artist in residence @ The Peninsula Studios and decided to record seven popular baul and bhatiyali songs from UndividedBengal, with an ensemble of talented musicians, which include compositions by LalonFakir.
