Baularchive is dedicated to the memory of Professor Edward C. Dimock, Jr. who inspired generations of American and Bengali scholars with the poetry and philosophy of Baul songs.

We also are indebted to the influence of Allen Ginsberg, who met Nabani Das in the early 1960s and wrote “Indian Journals” and never wavered from his spiritual path; to Albert B. Grossman who brought Nabani’s sons Purna and Luxman Das Baul with their group to the US in 1967 to record for Elektra Records and tour; to the departed Carol Salomon, an inspirational educator and scholar who is sorely missed; and Subrata Mitra legendary Kolkata film maker, who directly and indirectly mentored the baularchive team.
