Kenduli Mela

This is a unique opportunity to meet India’s wandering minstrels, the Bauls. Dressed in saffron robes, they play distinctive West Bengali folk music using a stringed instrument called the ektara. Villagers provide rooms for rent, or visitors may stay in the nearby town of Bolpur. January 14–16, 2019.
