Mai Jaha Rahu Sargam Notes


HOW TO READ THE NOTATIONS

  • CAPITAL LETTERS
    = Shuddh Swars (Natural Notes)
  • small letters
    = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • M with # [hash] or ^ [exponent]
    = Tivra Madhyam (M# / M^)
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY
    = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma]
    = Low Octave Note/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote]
    = High Octave Note/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { }
    = “murki” 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.
  • Few “….” (dots) after a note 
    = Play and hold that note

Singer/s : Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Krishna
Lyrics : Javed Akhtar
Music : Himesh Reshammiya
Movie: Namastey London (2007)

Flute used for notations : C#

I think this is the only song composed by Himesh Reshamiya which will be remembered for years to come.

At first I thought I’d never be able to write down the Sargam for this song due to the sudden change of octave – right from low to high – that happens in the Sthayi part. But this song is so beautiful that I had to play it on my flute. After many trials, I finally hit that high note correctly with Gandhar of Taar Saptak (G’). This was the only most difficult note to find out in this song. Rest of the song, otherwise, was easy.  Only at few places, the Komal Dhaiwat (d) and Komal Nishad (n) are used. Murkis on words “yaad” and “dil” are difficult but not impossible. Just a little practice will do.
