Bhawaiya - the buffalo keeper's song

In the northern parts of Bengal (considering both West Bengal and Bangladesh), where I was born and brought up, we would sing Bhawaiya songs. The folk music of the northern plains. The songs that match the moody wind and vast green meadows. The songs that are sung by the মৈষাল (buffalo keepers) and গাড়িয়াল (bullock cart drivers) and মাহুত (Mahout). Songs of romance, joy and melancholia.
