Eyi Raat Tomar Amar


Lyrics : Gouriprasanna Majumder
Singer & Composer :  Hemanta Mukherjee
Movie : Deep Jwele Jai (1959)

Flute used for notations : F#

What a soulful song!  This song was remade in Hindi in the 1964 movie Kohra.  The melody of the Sthayi part of both the versions is same.  But, the Antara in this Bengali version is shorter and simpler than its counterpart.

A very easy to play song on instruments as it does not contain any komal swars.  You only have to pay attention to the use of Meend (~) between the notes to create that wavy effect in the melody.

Hindi version of this song is here.

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.
