Some Musical Notes

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni..
Do Re Me Fa So La Ti..
Seven notes that create magic
In Indian and Western Music!
 
Kritis, Ghazals, Bhajans, Thumri or Dadra
Symphony, Jazz, Rock, Reggae or Opera -
All from these seven notes emanate
And musical ambrosia they create!
 
Octaves, Soprano, Crescendo or an Aalap,
Beats of the drum or a simple Tabla dhaap -
All make the swaras and notations dance,
Sending rasikas and connoisseurs into a trance!
 
Veena, Violin, Sarod and Sitar,
Piano, Flute, Clarinet and Guitar -
All add to the magic of melody
And create a musical rhapsody.
 
For every mood, there’s a song
That lifts you up before long..!
Music adds meaning to life
Whether in joy or in strife!

 
 
Tailpiece:
 
The Trinity of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart,
And Thygaraja, Shyamasastri and Dikshitar-
Were all contemporaries
Creating musical history!

(Saint Thyagaraja, Shyamasastri and Muthuswamy Dikshitar, are known as the Trinity of Carnatic Classical Music)
