Kaash Aisa Koi Manzar Hota

Kaash Aisa Koi Manzar Hota

Singer : Hariharan
Lyricist : Tahir Faraz, ,
Music Director : Hariharan,
Album : Kaash (2002)
Flute used for producing Sargam : E Bass Scale

This is one of the best gazals of Hariharan. It is based on raag Malgunji. which generates from Thaat Kafi. In this raag both forms of Gandhar (G; g) and Nishad (N, n) are used. I am writing down the basic notations for this gazal without digging deep into the “Harkats” that Hariharan ji has rendered into it. I am sure once you get a hang of this gazal with these notations, you will be further able to improvise and bring in those “Harkats” into your playing.

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.
