Post that, he primarily trained in the genre of Baul music under Tarak Khyapa besides also learning from Anath Bondhu Ghosh and Lakkhan Das Baul. While in Kolkata, folk specialist Abhijit Basu helped him further with his genre of music. Bamaprasad plays different acoustic instruments such as the dubki,khamak, ektara and mandira.He has notably performed in Delhi,Bhopal,Sikkim and Bangladesh.
