When we asked rapper Feyago to journey through North East India to create an iconic hip hop anthem, he began his journey in his home town of Kolkata. Talking to us about his roots, and how he got started in the music industry, Feyago set off for Shantiniketan, looking for a Baul folk singer - one of Bengal's oldest forms of music.
The journey takes us through the sights, sounds, and tastes of West Bengal, culminating with the creation of an iconic fusion of traditional Bengali folk music and urban hip hop, in a track simply titled 'Baul'. Check out the music video below:
