Sargam notations for a Bengali devotional song “Sishire Sishire”.

Writing Sargam for this song took me almost 20 days to figure out the correct pattern. However, after listening to it for dozens of times and blowing my flute for even more, I found out that this particular song is played with all Komal Swars, i.e., re, ga, dha and ni. Octave changes to high in the Antaras.  At first, it seemed to be not my cup of tea to produce Sargam for this song, but then perseverance paid off finally, and I succeeded in writing the following notes for this beautiful song.

Hope you will enjoy as much as I have while playing it on my G scale flute.

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.
