Sargam notations for the song : Kahin door jab din dhal jaye
Singer : Mukesh
Lyrics : Yogesh
Music : Salil Chowdhury
Movie : Anand (1971)
This song is very close to my heart. Magical composition by Sali Chowdhury, amzing lyrics by Yogesh and soulful singing of Mukesh. Just the song that I wish to listen again and again when I am sad.
I had been trying to write the notations for this song from quite some time now. But I would get stuck after the prelude tune which I would start with Ga for easiness. But after the prelude I would not get the correct note of the first word “kahin” in the song. I kept on trying and trying. And then, today I tried something different. I started the prelude tune with High Sa on G# flute. That was it. After starting the prelude of the song on high sa, I was able to come to the correct note for “kahin” which was Dha.
I really enjoy playing this song on my flute. I have tried to jot down the prelude, interlude and music pieces in between the song as below. Hope you will also enjoy this evergreen song on your instruments.
