Imagine lying in a hammock amidst a forest, beside a river, far from the chaos and noise of city life, and watching forest birds chirping and playfully flying around you. And if this was not enough, you suddenly hear a baul singing with his ektara some local folklore. Well, now you don’t have to imagine. Mundira Musical Camp offers you exactly the pleasant respite what you are looking for, a much needed detox for your mind and soul. Mundira Musical Camp is located at Joydev Kenduli, a small village in the Bolpur subdivision of Birbhum District, West Bengal.
