Babunath Jogi, a devotional vocalist, plays the Jogia Sarangi and sings eulogies and folktales with his co-artists Surdas and Mehmood khan who accompany with the beats of Bhapang (rare single stringed percussion instrument) and the Dholak. Belonging to the Meo-jogi community native to eastern Rajasthan, he continues a centuries-old tradition of singing folklores passed on through an oral ritual spanning generations. Babunath Jogi, a philosopher in real life, is an embodiment of the concept of ramta jogi- a saint always on the move with little or no material possessions, who has denounced worldly pleasures and comes to revel in a journey toward eternal truth. He passionately sings of varying themes rooted in Indian mythology ranging from Lord Krishna's misadventures to the setting of the marriage of Lord Shiva.

A popular folk tale from the region revolves around the King Gopichand who gave up his kingdom for devoting himself to the Nath Panth yogis and another one celebrates the brave and noble warrior King Ratan Singh. Babunath sings of these in his rustic vocals and a dynamic style that almost magnetically brings to life a shared history long forgotten and social bonhomie since lost. The strains of the Jogia Sarangi sonorously complement his musical story-telling set to a beat that seems to address the listener and entice him/her into the tale rather than just presenting a song to an audience — Courtesy De Kulture Music India.
