Sargam notations for bengali song : Ami je jalsa ghare
Singer : Manna De
Lyrics : Gauriprasanna Mazumder
Music : Anil Bagchi
Movie : Antony Firingi (1967)

This is pure classical song, beautifully composed by Anil Bagchi and rendered by the master of classical music – Manna De.  I had been trying to figure out the notations for this song for a long long time.  I was struggling because, I have no formal knowledge of Indian Classical music.  But finally, I managed to pull it off with hundreds of trial and errors.  I still do not know on which raag this song is based.  Most probably, Raag Lalit, but I am not too sure.

I produced the sargam notations of this sad yet melodious song on my F# scale flute, using lots of ‘Meend’, ‘Gamak’ and combination of high, low and medium octaves.  A little difficult song for the beginners to play it on their instruments, but with practice it should come through.

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.
