Raag Majh
Tu Mera Pita Pita Tu Hai Mera Mata

Translation : http://www.sikhnet.com/GurbaniKirtan/tr_0795.html





This raga is attributed to Guru Nanak, who developed it from a Punjabi folk tune. It does not appear in the Ragmala nor does it seem to be a classical raga today. Possibly it has been reserved purely for Gurbani Sangeet. Majh was the setting for compositions by Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das and Guru Arjan. This is a regional raga of Manjha- the central portion of the Punjab-and is sung in the afternoon. Here Guru Nanak has given an account of social, cultural and religion conflict between the Hindus and the Muslims in his age. Guru Arjan has composed the calendar- Barah Maha-in this raga. He has dwelt on the characteristics of different months, and the importance of water and milk in the agricultural economy of the punjab. Metaphorically these two things respectively signify that man without devotion and kindness is no good at all.


Aroh : Sa Re Ma Pa Dha Sa
Avroh : Sa Ni Dha Pa Ma Ga Re Sa
Vadi : Ma
Samvadi : Sa



The raga is sung to describe the lacerations of a beloved in the memory of his/her lover. The shabad of Guru Arjan 'mera maan lochey...is the best example to describe the depth of this raga. The notes used in this raga are:

Arohi (ascending scale) -
sa re ma pa ni sa (omitted notes are -ga, dha)

Avrohi (descending scale) -
sa ni-(soft note) dha pa ma ga-(soft note) re sa

The vadi (most popular) note is 're' and
samvadi (second most popular) note is 'pa'.

Raga Majh is sung at the third part of the day i.e., from 12 noon to 3 p.m.
The season of its recitation is rainy (varsha) i.e., during July and August.


Other Shabads on Raag Majh
Hou reh na sakaa bin dekhai pritma
Madhsudan mere man tan prana

Raag Gaudi and its Variations



Gouri, too, is a prAchina rAga. Or, to be more precise, it is a group of rAgas. Furthermore, it would be appropriate to regard Gouri as a sub-melody, more in the line of a gesture than a full blown Raganga. And so it is that there are Gouris of the Bhairav, Poorvi and Marwa thATs with additional qualifiers such as the Shree-anga Gouri, Bhairav-anga Gouri, Poorvi-anga Gouri and so on. These are not considered 'big' rAgas.
Most of the Gouris in vogue fall to either the Bhairav or the Poorvi thAT. The canonical Gouri signature obtains from the peculiar behaviour on and around the shuddha nishAd of the mandra saptak.
To wit: S, N' N' S, r G, r S r N', N' d' N', N' S


Gaudi
Jo Jaano Teon Raakh
Wadhbhagi Har Kirtan Gaiye


Gaudi Gauraree
Har Ke Nam Vithoh Bal Jaoun


Gaudi Cheti
Ab mohe ram apna kar janya
Dekho bhai gyan ki ayi aandhi
Mere sahiba kaun jaane guna tere 1
Mere sahiba kaun jane gun tere 2


Gaudi Biragan
Mere ram ham papi saran pare
Mai Banjaran Ram Ki


Gauri (Siri Raga Ang)
Ja ka meet sajan hai samia


Gauri (Bhairav Ang)

Thir ghar baiso har jan pyare

Raag Asa
Shabad :
Click here > Chuka nihohra sakhi saheri

Translation:
Click here > http://www.sikhnet.com/GurbaniKirtan/tr_0852a.html

Raag Theory :
Asa is a very old raga, once popular in the Punjab but seldom heard in concerts today. In the Ragmala this is a ragini of raga Megha. However, today it is assigned to the Bilaval thata. Asa is a devotional raga for the cold season and is performed in the early morning just before sunrise. However, it is also known as a twilight melody with a calm mystical mood. Asa was used by Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das, Guru Arjan and Guru Tegh Bahadur.

Asa raga literally means the melody of hope. As the Gurus emphasised the singing of God’s praises before dawn, this raga is conducive to kirtan before day-break. It is a soothing and pleasing raga, appropriate for the singing of the Asa-di-var, the morning-prayer of the Sikhs. Guru Ramdas’s Chants ser the tone of this blissful composition:

“My eyes are damp with the nectar of the Lord;
My soul is filled with His love” [7].

Chalange uth naam jap nis basar aradh
Gur mere sang sadaa hai naale
Kya jana kya hoyega ri mai

In an attempt to bring more Gurbani into our lives it would be great to analyse one shabad every week. It will be wonderful to get your thoughts about what the shabad is telling us and how we can...
