Sathiya tune kya kiya


SARGAM notations for a melodious romantic song Sathiya tune kya kiya
Singers : SP balasubramanian, chitra
Lyrics : Majrooh Sultanpuri
Music : Anand Milind
Movie : Love (1991)

What a beautiful composition!  Though the entire song is so lovely, but the most tricky yet melodious part to play in this song is the “Lalalalala…”

Just divide this part into 5 and practice one part at a time until you master it and then play all these parts slowly first and build up speed gradually.  Once you are able to play these 5 parts together, you will find a different kind of satisfaction as I did.  Good luck and enjoy!


 Notes & Sargam is the first website on the internet to jot down the sargam for the tricky part in this song.

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.
