Sare Jahan Se Achha

sare jaha se achha

Poet : Muhammad Iqbal
Released on : 16th Aug 1904

Notations produced on C Middle Scale Flute

Sitting at home during this pandemic – COVID19 – gave me ample time to enrich the list of sargam notations on this website.  Following many requests, I jotted down the Sargam notations for this patriotic song which was written more than 100 years ago!!  It took me some time to figure out that the first note has to be Komal Gandhar (g) on C scale and not the Shuddh Gandhar (G).  All Antaras of this song start with different notes. Pay attention to play komal gandhar and lower octave notes cleanly.  Enjoy!

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Flat Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Low Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar (High Note)
  • 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” have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( ) = “kaan 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.
