I would like to travel to West Bengal for a week or two in order to do some photography (and possibly environmental/live recordings) of Baul songs.
I know the biggest meal for Bauls is in the last day of Poush month. From what I understand it's around 13/14th of January 2012.
If anyone knows the answer to the following it would be greatly appreciated:
1. What are the exact dates for Keduli Mela 2013?
2. In your opinion, if one is mostly concerned with seeing and hearing Bauls, would that mela be a good time to go, or would it be to crowded and distracting?
3. What other time of year is good for the purpose stated above, and where should I consider travelling to in order to see them?
