Amar Adhar Bhubone


Singer: Kishore Kumar
Music Director: Kishore Kumar
Lyricist: Shibdas Banerjee
Album : Ami Premer Pother Pothik (1989)

Flute used for notation : C#

One of the best Bengali songs composed and sung by Kishore Kumar.  Can’t say on which Raag is it based, but its semi-classical mood makes it a treat for the ears.  Use of Komal Gandhar (g), Komal Nishad (n) and Komal Dhaiwat (d) is prominent in these notations.  Listen to this song a couple of times before playing it on your Bansuri or other instruments.

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Pure Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar 
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma] = Low Pitch/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote] = High Pitch/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { } = “murki” or “khatka” which have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( ) = “kann swar” has to be just touched before moving on to the next note
  • A “~” between two Notes = “Meend”. That is, you have to glide from one note to another slowly to produce that wavy effect.
