Sargam notations for the song Banarasiya…

Singer : Shreya Ghoshal
Music Director : A.R. Rahman
Writer : Irshad Kamil
Movie : Ranjhana (2013)

Scale used : G#

A pretty lengthy song.  Took me almost a week to jot down its notations. Lots of ‘Meend’ and ‘Murkis’ used.  As for the Raag on which this Banarasiya song is based, I think it is Raag Yaman Kalyan.  Enjoy!

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.
