the mystical bauls....

I know of the Bauls through Osho....He writes of them as the "sahaja purushas" - natural beings.
Some of their songs are so mystical(like in sufi tradition) and thanks to Osho's translations, we get to know them...
a sample:
Only a connoisseur of the flavours of love
can comprehend the flavours of a lover's heart;
others have no clue.
The taste of lime rests in the core of the fruit
and even experts know of no easy way to reach it.
Honey is hidden within the lotus bloom
but the bee knows it.
Dung beetles nestle in dung, discounting honey.
Submission is the secret of knowledge.......
