Here is a recording project by old friends from Bengal Moushumi Bhowmik and Sukanta Majumdar – recordings that deserve lingering listening. Its not a website to scan and leave, it is one to come back to, replay, languid like, I dunno, the river in the Ghatak films or something. Poingnant soundings from Bauls, Nazrul Fakir, other stuff. It deserves all support, as they ‘try to show Bengal as a complex/complicated place’…

See them in London at Rich Mix from 22 June to 5 July. In the meantime, listen below:
