Hum Bewafa Hargeez Na The

Hum Bewafa Hargeez Na The sargam

Singer : Kishore Kumar
Lyricist : Anand Bakshi
Music by : R D Burman
Film : Shalimar (1978)
Raag : Khamaj

Flute used for notations : G#

Following notations are easy to play on flute and other instruments.
If I trust my ears, then this song seems to be based on Raag Khamaj. Why do I say so? While I’m not too sure about this song, but I’m pretty sure about “Ye Kya Hua, Kaise Hua..” song which is based on Khamaj Raag. Now when you sing both the songs back to back, you may carefully notice that there are traces of the tune of “Ye Kya hua…” song in “Hum Bewafa…” song. Hence, I concluded, although skeptically, that this song might also be based on Raag Khamaj.

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.
