Raag Bageshree

ABOUT THE RAAG [RAAG PARICHAY / DESCRIPTION]

  1. Raag Bageshree is also known as Bageshri, Bagesari, Bageshwari, Vageshwari).
  2. It is a very melodious, ancient, ‘big’ raag-ang raag, popular even with children.
  3. This is a pure raag that is generated from Raag Kafi by decreasing the influence of Rishabh and Pancham.
  4. Bageshree finds mention in the older treatises as “Vageeshwari.”
  5. It is said to have been invented by Tansen, the court singer of Mughal Emperor Akbar.

THAAT: Kafi

JAATI:

Almost all versions of Bageshree can be grouped under three main jatis:

  1. Audav ShadavaR and P varjit in AarohP in Avroh – sufficient to define the raga-lakshanas.
  2. Audav-SampoornaR and P varjit in Aaroh only – most performed versions adopt this and involve a peculiar avarohi pancham-laden tonal cluster.
  3. Sampoorna-Sampoorna:  All swaras present, in vakra prayogas.
  4. Some consider basic swaroop as Shaudav-Sampoorna, where P is skipped in Aaroh.

SVARAS:

S ‘n ‘D ‘n S m, m g R S
As seen above, all notes are shuddha except Gandhar and Nishad, which are Komal.

[Please refer to the page “Notations / Swar Mapping” for abbreviations used for svaras / notations.]

VAADI SVAR: Maddhyam is the Praan of the Raag – the whole swaroop of the Raag is structured around it.

SAMVAADI SVAR: Shadaj

VIVAADI SVAR/S: (also known as Vajr / Varjit / Enemy / Forbidden Notes): R & P in Aaroh

NIYAAS SVAR/S: Maddhyam is a Niyaas Bahutva note in both Aroah and Avroah – S ‘n ‘D n S m, g m D..m, n D..m, S m g..R S ‘D ‘n S m,

Characteristic phrases:

S, n’ D’, D’ n’ S m, m  g, (S)R, S
The m is powerful, & the melodic centre of gravity.  In avaroh, a modest pause on g is prescribed (it helps prevent a spillover into Kafi). A kan of S is imparted to R.

S g m, m g m D, D n D, D-m, g, (S)R, S
The raganga  is embedded here.  Note the niyas on D and the D-m sangati.

g mD n S”
g m n D n S”
m D n S”
Each of these arohs allows an uttaranga launch. See how to insert P in avroh:

S”, (n)D n D, m P D (m)g, (S)R, S
P could be touched or clear in aaroh e.g. D n D, P D n D.  S g m, m g, m, M g (S)R, S
Observe the vakra use of R aaroh.  Steer clear of Abhogi –uccharana bheda  separates Bageshree and Abhogi in this region of the poorvanga.

CLASSICAL COMPOSITIONS VOCAL – BANDISHES:

  1. In his day, Rajab Ali Khan (1874-1959) was known as much for his tremendous musical acumen as for his picaresque ways.  A master vocalist, he was also proficient on the Rudra Veena, Sitar and Jala-Tarang. Several musicians of high standing learnt from him, among them his nephew Amanat KhanNivruttibuwa SarnaikGanpatrao Dewaskar and others.  Lata Mangeshkar, too, briefly took taleem from Rajab Ali during her stint under Aman Ali.  He sings the traditional composition, kaun karata tori binati.

SONGS FROM HINDI FILMS – BASED ON OR INSPIRED BY Bageshree

TITLES OF SONGS (A-Z)

  1. Aankhon aankhon mein – Jaanwar – Lata Asha – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc8OkCoH3vo  Although there is a generous use of Rishabh, the prelude is all over the place, certain phrases are not exactly Bageshri like, along with the use of some vivadi notes, the song is still inspired by Bageshri.
  2. Aaja Re Pardesi – Madhumati
  3. Baagon mein kaise ye phool khilte hain – Lata, Mukesh – S D Burman – Chupke Chupke (1975)  –  http://youtu.be/v2lxsXa_Nkk
  4. Bedardi hua balma
  5. Chaah Barbad Karegi_K.L.Saigal in Shahjahan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QvxeVUyQAY  Not many today appreciate the extent of sway K.L. Saigal held over the Indian musical imagination in the first half of the 20th century. Even if all Saigal-sahab did was snore, it would still have musical value. Here he wields Naushad‘s tune in SHAHJEHAN (1946)
  6. Chalak Rahi Boonde Mitwa, Starring: Kanan Kaushal, Movie- Maya Machindra 1975 full movie – couldn’t find the track! – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udgyyNMglJg
  7. Deewane tum deewane hum – Bezubaan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6TTKHBiT6Y  see the amazingly similar moods, this raaga creates – Karuna Ras = Sadness, Compassion, pity, sympathy… even in this supposedly lilting number… what a gem..

  12. Humne Apna Sab Kuchh Khoya SARASWATI CHANDRA (1968)
    • Definitely has the taste of Bageshri, although shuddh Ga is used at times, but that’s fine. Saraswati chandra starred Nutan and Manish among others and was directed by Govind Saraiya. It was also the last Bollywood movie to be made in black and white. The film was based on Saraswati chandra, a landmark Gujarati novel, by Govardhanram Madhavram Tripathi, a famous author of early twentieth century Gujarat, India. It also won the National Film Awards in the Best Cinematography and Best Music Director categories

  17. Jao jao nand ke laala – Lata – Rangoli – The great composer duo of Shankar-Jaikishan fashioned a crisp Bageshree in RANGOLI (1962), again centred on the theme of a naughty, intransigent Krishna.  Nobody can match Lata in this situation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULtJnubvddo
  18. jeevan se bhari teri aankhen – Kishore Kumar – Safar ‎
    • there is a controversy of whether this is malgunji or bageshri. The aaroh of malgunji is Sa Ga ma Dha Ni Sa vs aaroh of bageshri Sa ga ma Dha ni Sa and same notes in avroh.
    • In this song there is no shuddh Ni and near equal use of both gaas in aaroh, and antra is more like bageshri. So this raag is although mixed, but still has more flavour of bageshri. Malgunji vs Rageshri vs Bageshri
  19. Jo guzar rahi… Voh Khushi Mili Hai Mujhko– Mere Huzoor (Mohammed Rafi) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiOKDngPkRM  Bageshree is yearning, pathos, prayer, and the call to a beloved… Though there is a bit of a Bageshri angle…depends on where you assume Sa is.

Srinivas… “Bhoole Se Kar Liya Pyaar, Ho Gayi Nadani” also from Bhoot Nath by lata… u can hear strains of nain so nain & jaag dard-e-ishq… Malgunji is a complex Raga of the Khamaj Thaat having elements of Raga Rageshri (in the ascent), Raga Bageshri ( in the descent) and a few subtle touches of Jaijaiwanti. If traditionally Bageshri evokes feelings of separation from the lover, and Rageshri represents reunion, Malgunji depicts the initial realization of the reunion… can u sense the mood…? read about the nava rasas at http://indian-classical-music-hindustani.blogspot.com/2011/05/nava-rasaas.html
