Sargam notations for bengali song : Ami je jalsa ghare
Singer : Manna De
Lyrics : Gauriprasanna Mazumder
Music : Anil Bagchi
Movie : Antony Firingi (1967)
This is pure classical song, beautifully composed by Anil Bagchi and rendered by the master of classical music – Manna De. I had been trying to figure out the notations for this song for a long long time. I was struggling because, I have no formal knowledge of Indian Classical music. But finally, I managed to pull it off with hundreds of trial and errors. I still do not know on which raag this song is based. Most probably, Raag Lalit, but I am not too sure.
I produced the sargam notations of this sad yet melodious song on my F# scale flute, using lots of ‘Meend’, ‘Gamak’ and combination of high, low and medium octaves. A little difficult song for the beginners to play it on their instruments, but with practice it should come through.
