Ye Sham Mastani


Singer : Kishore Kumar
Lyricist : Anand Bakshi
Music Director : R D Burman
Movie : Kati Patang (1970)

Flute used for Sargam : G#

Though, this song can be started with shuddh Rishabh, but the problem with that would arise while playing the interlude music parts. So, it is easier and better to begin this song at low Pancham.

I have tried to jot down the Sargam for all the 3 Interludes, which make this song interesting even as all 3 Antaras are in same tune.

Pay attention to play Tivr Ma in the last lines of the Antaras where indicated as M#. Also, play Komal Ni for the Guitar part in the 3rd interlude.

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.
