The Baul Fakir Mela 2021 was held in Bannabagram Baul Ashram from 26th to 28th November. Around 180 Bauls and Baulanis from five districts of West Bengal – Nadia, Murshidabad, Bardhaman, Birbhum and Bankura – came and celebrated their love for music. Continually affected by the pandemic, this mela was a breath of fresh air for the musicians. The festival began at 6 in the morning with Probhati, the morning ritual, continued to music in the 4 Akhras and finally ended with evening performances on stage. With visitors appreciating and dancing to their tunes, the Baul Fakir Mela came to an end with Milon (celebration of togetherness), a ritual where all Bauls team up and sing in concert. The festival brought over around 1000 visitors.
