Lakshan Geet:


What is a Lakshan Geet?


Its a raga geet and its verses show the mood and the details of particular raga. It also teaches the way of singing raga and completely depicts the picture of the raga.  Lakshan Geet is probably the most typical fixed composition used for vocal instruction. This is a style of singing where the lyrics of the song actually describe the features of the raga.


If the lakshan geet is memorized, one will never forget the raga. Throughout ones life, whenever the raga is heard the words keep coming back. Below given raga asavari lakshan geet is sung in a beautiful style by Iqbal Yousuf Ramzi (ghazal geet singer). This geet will show what is real mood and properties of raga asavari and you will be able to play raga asavari songs in a better way shortly after listening lakshan geet.





Asavari is not a raga but ragni  and ragni asavari is derived from thaat asavari (Parentalscale). Still we can call it raga asavari to some extent. Its Vaadi (main note) is d and samvaadi (second in importance) is g and important anuvaadi is P. Its Jaati (class) is audav-sampoorn. Its time of performance is morning. Its pakad is R-m-P-S'- (n) d-P -R-m-P-n-d-P. It is played from madh - taar saptak. Its bhaav is shad-madhyam. Ragni asavari evokes the moods depicting yearning for love, anguish, and melancholy. Each raga has its own bandish. Whenever a music director composes a song based upon a given raga, he makes sure that he uses the bandish of that raga. This is the precise reason why two songs composed on the same raga sound similar. In a way, bandish is a common factor within all the tunes composed on a given raga.


Asavari is a very ancient ragni as is the allied raga gandhari; We will here train our sights on contemporary musical practice. Throughout this discussion, M=shuddh madhyam and m=tiver madhyam. The ragni, asavari, itself comes in three flavours, each distinguished by the manner of rishab use. They are, respectively, the shuddh rishab-only (R) asavari, the komal rishab-only (r) Asavari, and the third type employing both r and R. The swars of the R-only asavari are aligned with the asavari thaat proper whereas those of the r-only asavari belong to the bhairavi thaat.
