Jodi Kagoje Lekho Naam

Jodi kagoje lekho nam Sargam

Singer : Manna Dey
Lyricist : Gauriprasanna Mazumder
Music Director : Nachiketa Ghosh
Album : Chirodiner Manna De

Scale : C

Although this song can be played with starting note as Gandhar, but it sounded great on my C scale flute when I took Shadaj as the first note.  I had to use Mandra Saptak Madhyam or Low Octave Ma (,M) at few places, which means on flute, you may have to use the 7th hole with your Pinky finger.  That may be a little difficult for the beginners, but practice will sail you through it. Enjoy this immortal Manna De Song on your 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.
