RAAGA MARVA

FILM SONGS


1.   Payeliya bavari - Saaz aur Aawaz A very rare and melodious song based on Raag Marwa, composed by Naushad; interestingly, both raag Sohini and Marwa are of Marwa thaat, and listening to this song and songs on Raag sohini may help you notice suttle differences between the two of them. One of the most masterful uses of Marwa in film music. Maestro naushad at his best and what singing by Lataji. Marwa is a very poignant Raga of early evening. The mood is created by that special "Ati Komal" and the emphasis on it. Kumar Gandharva once said that imagine the scorching heat of May and the cracked parched earth crying for rain. If you can feel that, you will see Raag Marwa personified. This raag is very deep and mystical in contrast to Sohini which is more romantic.
