Raaga Based Song Of The Day #74

Raaga Based Song of the Day: Nache man mora magan dhig dha dhigi dhigi ….
Raag Bhairavi, Tal Tintal/Kaherava

I feel that I haven’t given you enough of what is known as the Queen of Melodies: Raag Bhairavi. So far I have given you just two songs: Babul mora naihar chhooto hi jaaye, one of the finest examples of this raag (Tal Kaherava; ‘Please see: Raaga Based Song Of The Day #11′); and Tumhi ho mata pita tumhi ho after I lost my mother on 09 Aug 17 (Tal Kaherava; Please see:Raaga Based Song Of The Day #57). I haven’t given you, for example, any of Jaikishan songs; he was so fond of Bhairavi that he named his daughter Bhairavi. Indeed, so popular is this raaga for composing Hindi songs that for the next hundred days I can keep giving you songs in this raaga and will still have some songs left.

This one is a favourite on many counts. The first one is Mohammad Rafi, the best male singer that we ever had and perhaps shall ever have. It is fashionable for people to say, without knowing enough, that perhaps Manna Dey was a better singer of classical songs. I like Manna Dey too but he is nowhere near the range of Rafi Saab. The second is the superb composition by SD Burman not only for this song but in other songs of the movie Meri Soorat Teri Aankhen such as Poochho na kaise maine rayn bitayi (I have already given you this, in Raag Ahir Bhairav; Please see: ‘Raaga Based Song Of The Day #22’) and Tere bin soone nain hamare (Raag Pilu, Tal Dadra). Indeed, composers like SD Burman and Naushad are the reasons I started learning about raaga based songs.

The third reason is that Tabla accompaniment to Mohammad Rafi was Pandit Samta Prasad (Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri), a legend in his own right. Please recall what I told you about Taal (Rhythm) in the beginning (Please see: Raaga Based Song Of The Day #2). I told you that Taal or Tal has literally come from Taali (Clap) and that’s how rhythm used to be kept at one time. Nowadays, Tabla does it but you still see, in concerts, people keeping rhythm by Clap or Wave of the hand. That’s the importance of Tabla for you. This song has two different Tal at two different stages of the song: Tintal and Kaherava. In addition, this song has so much dependance on Tabla that only a maestro could have done justice to it. Pandit Samta Prasad (by the way, he was RD Burman’s guru in music) did it so exellently.

We have completed seventy-three days of Raaga Based Songs of the Day. Our first post in the series was titled ‘Raaga Based Song Of The Day #1’ and the song was a Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar song from the 1970 Shakti Samanta movie Pagla Kahin Ka: Tum mujhe youn bhula na paoge.  It is in Raag Jhinjhoti, Tal Kaherava.

Our seventy-third post or the last post was titled Raaga Based Song Of The Day #73 and the song was a Mohammad Rafi song from the 1957 Kedar Kapoor movie Miss Bombay starring Ajit, Nalini Jaywant and Rehman: Zindagi bhar gham judaai ka mujhe tadpaayega. It is in Raag Malkauns, Tal Rupaktal.

This blog has a number of posts on Raaga based songs in Hindi movies titled similarly; for example: ‘The Best Raaga Based Songs in Hindi Movies – Raaga Yaman – Part III‘.

In the last seventy-three days of sharing Raaga based songs of the day, I have given you songs based on Raag Jhinjhoti, Gara, Bhimpalasi, Madhuvanti, Shivaranjani, Bihag, Pahadi, Sarang, Pilu, Bhairavi, Khammaj, Charukesi, Kalyan or Yaman, Desh, Malgunji, Kirwani, Kedar, Bageshri, Megh Malhar, Bhupali, Ahir Bhairav, Malkaush, Mand, Adana, Kafi, Rageshri, Jaunpuri, Tilang, Janasammohini, Chayanat, Shuddha Kalyan, Gaur Sarang, Jogiya, Asavari, Maru Bihag, Durga, Lalit, Puria Dhanashri, Bhinna Sahdja, Sohani, Multani, Patdeep, Jaijaiwanti, Tilak Kamod, Hemant, Basant Mukhari, Gujri Todi, Kalavati, Hamir, Bhatiyar, Gawati, Shyam Kalyan, Gorakh Kalyan, Madhamat Sarang, Manj Khammaj, Darbari Kanada, Vibhas and Shankara; making it a total of 58 raagas. The raagas that have been repeated so far are Pahadi, the raaga of my home place in the Himalayas, Maru Bihag, Raag Kirwani, Jhinjhoti, Bhairavi, Gara, Basant Mukhari and Malkauns. Today, I am repeating Raag Bhairavi.

Today’s song has been sung by Mohammad Rafi on the lyrics of a great lyricist: Shailendra (he was the lyricist (together with Hasrat Jaipuri) for one of the best Raaga Based Songs movies Basant Bahar with compositions by Shankar Jaikishan. Interestingly, Pandit Samta Prasad played Tabla in that movie too) and on a composition by SD Burman. As I said, it is in Raag Bhairavi, Tal Tintal/Kaherava.

As I mentioned, today’s song is composed in Raag Bhairavi Tal Tintal/Kaherava.

Raag Bhairavi is the basic raag of the Bhairavi Thaat. Bhairavi makes use of all the komal swars, Rishabh, Gandhar, Dhaivat, Nishad. When singing compositions in Bhairavi raag, the singers however take liberty to use all the 12 swars. Bhairavi raag is named after the shakti or feminine aspect of the cosmic life force, which is personified as a consort to Lord Shiva. Bhairavi is a powerful raag filled with devotion and compassion. Its Jati is Sampurna – Sampurna, which means all seven swar (heptatonic) both in Aaroha and Avaroha. I have already told you that in a concert Bhairavi is usually the concluding raaga since it is supposed to cure mistakes of the earlier performances. Hence, if a concert has started at night (which is usually the case), Bhairavi would be played in the wee hours of the morning.

A pleasant sobering atmosphere full of love and piety is created with this raag and one feels so close to the Supreme. Its compositions include several Thumris, Bhajans, Ghazals, Songs etc. Since it is an ocean of immense possibilities the melodic combitions can include all the twelve notes with skill.
