Gour Khepa Das Baul sings about being mad for God-Love. The difference between him…
and “the rest“…
is that Gour Khepa Das Baul may actually be mad for God-Love. Like, forget where you left your teeth mad. And, for that we dub him this weeks’ Friday Good.
Not to mention, he’s about as “experimental” as it gets. If he was from America and had a hipster mustache he’d be getting profiled in VICE magazine and be dating an eighteen-year-old art student at RISD. Being all ironic and whatnot….
Thankfully, he’s semi-hidden in the small Indian college town of Shantiniketan sing-talking about pissing in the curry of those who do not enjoy monster tokes from the blessed herb….
He’s also straight up old-school. Here he is at the JaiDev Mela in ’86….
And, here’s a pic of him being all sinister while surrounded by a bunch of long-haired French(?) pale faces….
Also, if anyone can translate, he mentions Bob Dylan and Bob Marley in the very beginning of this video. Would love to know where he’s going with that….
Enjoy, my lovelies!
