INDIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC – RAAG BHARON
Raag bharon is one of the most popular and sweet raag in Indian classical Music. The name of the thatt of this raag
is also known as Bahron thatt. Seven notes are used in this raag, but remember that note
Re and Dha are komal (black)notes in this raag. This raag is also know as the jhank raag
of Bharon Thatt. All seven notes are used in Arohi and Amrohi therefore its jati is
samporan which means all seven notes are used in ascending and descending order. The
wadi note of this raag is dhawat (dha) and the samwadi note is Re. The effect of this raag
is very deep and sad, so many sad songs are composed in this raag. Dhurpat, dhamar and
tarana are sung in this raag. Arohi is Sa Re(black) Ga Ma Pa Dha(black) Ne Sa. Sa ne
dha(black) pa ma ga Re(black) sa. The pakar of this raag is Sa Ga ma pa dha(black).
Sur Malika satai would be like this, Ga ma Dha(black) pa dha(black) pa ma Ga ma re sa. ne
sa ga ma pa dha ne sa dha(black) sa ne dha(black) pa ga ma dha(black) pa. There is one
very popular rachna based on the pure suwar malik, that is Jago Jago hua swera. The best
example of this raag can be found in old hit indian movies Baiju bawara, the song is
Mohe bhol gaye samwariya. You can remember this song to remember the mood of raag bharon
and there is one more song based on the raag, Albela sajan from the film Hum dil de chukay
sanam. In the forthcoming articles we shall discuss about finding the identity of raags,
