Bhatiyali Folk Song



Bhatiyali Folk Song is a traditional boat song of eastern Bengal. It is sung by boatmen during the journey across down streams of the river. 'Bhatiyali' means the downstream or ebb. Beginning with an endearing address, the voice of the song takes a loud flight of top notes. Gradually, the tune slides down to lower notes.

Bhatiyali Songs are also mentioned in Sri Krishna Kirtan.
