NEW CD BANJARA RELEASED "BANJARA" CD RELEASE
BAUL MEETS SAZ (BENGAL-ANATOLIA)
Emre Gültekin - Malabika Brahma - Sanjay Khyapa

Emre Gültekin, singer and player of the saz (a long-necked Anatolian lute) unites the sounds of his instrument with the voice and percussion of Malabika Brahma and Sanjay Khyapa originate from India and have become the musical ambassadors of Baul culture. The Bauls, a marginal Indian community from Bengal, are nomadic and are deeply spiritual, seeking the sacred in human beings rather than in heaven.The Bauls share a similar way of life with the Alevites of Turquie, for whom Emre Gültekin, as a modern troubadour, has made himself the spokesman.
In uniting these two cultures and their musical traditions, Baul Meets Saz creates a strangely modern music, at one and the same time powerful and mystical. Since their first encounter this trio has found the unconditional bond of music and friendship which was reflected on their first CD Namaz in 2018.
This October the trio is presenting their second CD Banjara (nomad in Hindi) from Uren Production in tribute to the philosophy shared in two cultures born by nomadic musicians : respect, humility, devotion to humankind and love...

ABOUT
"Bauls believe a human being to be the absolute truth above anything else, therefore, by reverence to humankind and offering service to a human being is the only pathway to attain spiritual liberation. As a practitioner of this philosophy we believe the universe is made of five elements and so are we. If we have to understand the universal system instead of looking outside we need to dive deep inside us to find our true self which we call inner knowledge. Our songs are a journey to this inner knowledge.
In this time as we witness the intolerance and hatred across the globe, we definitely should look towards the universal system where there is no hierarchy. As a part of the universal system we are just a servant of this universe. We all have our part and worshipping human being as absolute form shall lead us to the spiritual bliss in present time. Our sole belief is to be in a world of togetherness, empathy & love ... beyond race, religion and borders."
