    bengalis (people who's origins are in Bengal in India) are referred to as bongs. so bongrass is basically bluegrass styled music in bengali language! thats something we have coined and we are the only band in the country to do this!

    Great. So, what is this song about? Is there a train, a prison, a murder, a wayfaring stranger?

    Good idea on the explanation. At a glance, the name sounds like something that Yonder Mountain String Band or Dawg would be into
