BANSURI NOTATIONS PDF

This if very difficult to explain, but I will do my best here. The word "Raga" literally means "what colours the mind" and often in music books you will find all kinds of heavy worded and poetic descriptions, however for the sake of helping you understand what a raga is, I will explain it as simply as I can at first before giving the more complex descriptions. It is important also to know that there are hundreds of ragas - all with different names, some are more common than others. A raga is basically a melody produced by playing a set of specific notes and adhering to certain rules.

This if very difficult to explain, but I will do my best here. The word "Raga" literally means "what colours the mind" and often in music books you will find all kinds of heavy worded and poetic descriptions, however for the sake of helping you understand what a raga is, I will explain it as simply as I can at first before giving the more complex descriptions.

It is important also to know that there are hundreds of ragas - all with different names, some are more common than others. A raga is basically a melody produced by playing a set of specific notes and adhering to certain rules. Each raga, which is always improvised in Indian music, gives a different feel. So one improvised melody might make us think of romance, another might make us feel very calm and another might make its listeners feel sad.

Imagine someone saying to you "Ok so now you can play on the bansuri the normal notes; Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa, but now you must only play specific notes and some notes you must not play at all".

The natural scale of the bansuri is Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa excluding half notes - but when we play different ragas, we select only some of these notes. You will notice in this Raga Bhupali that Ma and Ni are omitted not played at all.

So we now know that Ragas consist of certain notes which must be played and other notes which must be omitted. The next thing you need to know is that some notes have more importance than others. So when a musician plays Raga Bhupali, he or she will play these notes longer or may start or stop on these notes.

Furthermore, ragas are traditionally played at different times of the day. Some ragas are played in early morning and other in the evening after sunset etc.

Nowadays these rules are not always followed however. Raga Bhupali is traditionally played in the evening between 6pm to 9pm. As I mentioned before, each raga creates different emotions and feelings.

Raga Bhupali is a Bhakti devotional raga and creates this mood. It is also often associated with the separation of a lover. The pakad refers to typical and generally accepted patterns of notes associated with a specific raga and which will help you to bring out the essence and full feeling of a particular raga. These notes are played over and over again throughout a performance and that is why it is important to know them. The pakad also helps players identify which raga is being played.

Now - Musicians usually explain ragas in a completely different way. Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia once said "For me, ragas are gods or goddesses, all members of a great family. I can call one of them any moment and immerse myself in its musicality; their personalities are so rich and complex that I never feel lonely".

So we can see that performing ragas is much more than just playing notes, it is like painting a picture in front of an audience and trying to convey all the emotions and make a beautiful painting. The "Sthayi" which is the first part of the composition and is a central and dominant part of the composition, played many times and which allows us to express the lower register; and the second part called the "Antara" which allows us to explore the higher register and then come back to the lower register and go back to the beginning of the sthayi.

Flute - Notations

The notes are not measured in pitch hertz , but are in relation to the first note. Furthermore, the notation system is based on finger position, rather than tone. What this means is that; Songs can be played on any bansuri, regardless of flute length. Key is not a constraint. The same tune will sound different on 2 flutes of different keys, but the playing and notation method will not change. The basic scale is as follows; I have added rainbow colours for ease of visualization.
