Wada karo nahi chhorogi


Sargam of song: waada karo nahi chhorogi
Movie : Aa gale lag ja (1973)
Singers : Kishore, Lata
Lyrics : Sahir Ludhianvi
Music : R D Burman

Flute used: C Middle

A super song by RD! It took me some time to figure out its first note on my Bansuri.  Starting with Sa was ok but not perfect.  Then after watching Ashwin Srinivasan playing this sone on flute in a video, I emulated him and played Dha as first note with Ga as Kann.

Easy song to play on Bansuri as it contains all Shuddh swars.

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.
