Relaxing Tune in Raag Megh

As mentioned in the title, the tune is based on Raag Megh, but Mishr due to the occasional Dha – not counting the Ga note touched by mistake.

Mishr* – means “joined” or in this context: “mixed”.

I have observed: when there are embellishments added to a composition which don’t fit in with the generally accepted rules of that Raag, people will add Mishr to the name of the Raag. For example, when announcing what she will be singing, a performer may say Raag Mishr Darbari instead of Raag Darbari if she will be bending the rules.
Performers will also often say “this is a semi-classical piece based on Raag Darbari.”

There are also more elaborate and creative Raag mixes used in traditional Sikh music. One example from our Gurbani is Raag Gauri bhi* Sorath bhi. Which is a Mishr (joining) of Raag Gauri and Raag Sorath. I have heard a tape of the late legend, Bhai Avtar Singh Ji singing this particular combination.
When ascending along the scale – he used the notes and patterns for Raag Gauri, but when descending – he used the notes and patterns for Raag Sorath. It’s quite difficult to handle and requires much training.

Bhi* – pronounced bhee – means “also”.

Back to Raag Megh:
I heard this tune on a pretty old tape of Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Gambhir singing the Shabad: “Vin Bolia Sabh Kich Jaanda Kis Aagai Keechai Ardaas?” – it’s not Title Raag though.

I love this tune, especially when playing/singing it and thinking of what the words mean – It’s so relaxing that it gives me goosebumps.

by the way: Megh ,pronounced MAYgh, means Cloud/Clouds. Listening to Raag Megh generally generates a cooling and soothing feeling.

But of course, Ustadji Plays Raag Megh much better than I do.

  1. there’s a traditional story in relation to the cooling effect of raag megha.
    tansen had been ordered to perform raag deepaka, which evokes the heat of flames (as of lamps, thus ‘deepaka’). he immersed himself in the river to sing, but even as he did so the water began to boil, and he was soon covered in burns. no medicine would cure him, and he took to wandering. he came upon a woman while wandering, who sang raag megha, and as she sung rain began to fall which cooled and cured his burns.
