MAN TARPAT HARI DARSHAN

Lyrics & Chords

This semi-classical song ( which may be even called a bhajan) by Rafi saheb in the film BAIJU BAWRA (1952) is the best example of a filmi song in raag MALKAUNS (called HINDOLAM in the Carnatic system). This is a beautiful “AUDAV” raag as it contains only five notes in aroha (ascendant) and five notes in the avaroha (descendant) in the octave range.

AROHA : Sa, komal Ga, Ma, komal Dha, komal Ni, Sa’ (S,g, m, d, n, S’ )
AVAROHA: Sa’, komal Ni, komal Dha, ma, komal Ga, Sa (S’, n, d, m, g, S)

Music was by Naushad. Lyrics were by Shakeel Badayuni.

Very Very nice. For high scale you did pretty good. I was waiting to hear the high notes and you just about managed it. Practice with just a Tanpura and I am sure you can nail it. Keep going….
