He is known for pioneering traditional Baul music on the international music scene and for establishing a genre of folk-fusion music. Paban Das Baul was born in Mohammedpur, a small village in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal, where his early musical influences were his father and wandering baul singers. In 1988, Das Baul started collaborating with Sam Mills, a London-born guitarist who had performed with experimental, avant garde group 23 Skidoo between 1979 and 1982. Their collaboration resulted in the acclaimed album "Real Sugar" (1997), released on Peter Gabriel's Real World Records, marking one of the first fusions of Bengali music and Western pop music.

He has also collaborated with the London-based State of Bengal and Susheela Raman. In 2005, the Baul tradition was included in the list of "Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO. He also performed at the Jaipur Literature Festival and the "Nine Lives" Concert, 2009 in London, of William Dalrymple. Read more on Last.fm.
