Nayono Sorosi Keno

Sargam notation for Bengali song : Noyono Sarashi keno (1979)
Singer: Kishore Kumar
Lyrics : Mukul Dutta

Sargam notes produced on C middle flute.

A wonderful semi classical composition by Kishore da, this song perhaps figures in top 10 Bengali songs of every Kishore fan. You have to listen to it to believe, in case you have still not heard it.

I found this as a tough song to pull off on my flute as it contains lots of komal swars (especially Ga, Da and Ni). And the Murki sung at the end of each Antaras was even tougher to jot down in Notes. However, finally after many attempts I have tried to write down the notations as close to the correctness as possible including Prelude and Interlude music pieces.

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.
