Parvathy Baul mesmerised the Patna audience with songs and dances using minimalist instruments such as Ektara which reveals the original sound ’Om Anhad Naad’ Duggi and Nupur. She started the performance with the song ‘Nitya Shuddham Nirakaran’ and performed a dance on the union of Radha Krisha and Shiv Bhakti. Despite language constraints Parvathy Baul’s music resonated with the audience. The Baul tradition combining Vaishnavism, Sufi, Buddhist and other traditions of music, made the entire atmosphere devotional by presenting various Bangla songs with the Sondhi aroma of Bangal and its divine expressions.
