Pranam Tomai Ghanasyam

 

Lyrics: Pranam Tomai Ghanasyam

Author: Anonymous

Book Name: None

Language: Bengali

Raga: Misra Bhairavi

 

A very simple bhajan from Bangladesh was rendered by Vaiyasaki dasa in his 1991 album Bhakti Ratna Mala. Although this bhajan didnt get much popularity, its haunting tune and sweet lyrics are not forgotten. Pranam Tomai Ghanasyam is based heavily on meandering forms of Bhairavi. FORM A is in typical Bhairavi (with addition of suddha Re for embellishment). FORM B is also in Bhairavi with a spare touch of suddha Ga and Ni. FORM C has more of a Bhairava/Kalingada feel. FORM D returns to Bhairavi.

 

Also, when singing, please do note that Verse 2, ksane in Bengali pronunciation is pronounced kho-ney. Also in FORM C, line 5 matra 5, the (G)r implies a vocal glissando or a meend. Its a slide that starts at Ga and ends at r.
