Fakir Lalon Shah, also known as Lalon Shah; c. 1774–1890)

This is a Sufi song from the district of Kushtia, situated in the north western region of present – day Bangladesh. These lyrics and many others were composed by the legendary Lalon Shah, the tune was also scored by him and the song was originally sung by him. These are called Lalon Geetis after his name. Since then many Fakirs and Bauls (who sing devotional songs) sung these songs over a period of centuries.
