Track Notes:

Aao Yog Divas Manayae - Yog Anthem, was submitted to both Global Performance & the Composing/ Arranging Category for vocals/instrumentals. This song was released on the eve of International Day of Yoga and World Music Day - 21 June 2022. This song was Composed/Written, Music Produced, Arranged & Record Produced by myself. I’ve sung and recorded this song with Bollywood singer Ravindra Upadhyay. Meaningful lyrics were written by BK Sapna.

The genre of this track is World Music; the Sub-Genre is Indian Pop.

Subtly, the style of this track literally blends the plethora of Indian Rhythm, Pop elements, shades of Jazz & the Indian Swaras combined with instruments such as Sitar, Tabla & Dholak, that which is in coherence with one of the most popular expressive forms of Indian Dance Kathak. Produced by JSJ Audio label & presented by Brahmakumaris - World Spiritual University that teaches the Rajyoga Meditation.

This track is meant to inspire listeners worldwide to understand the in-depth knowledge of different forms of yoga practices & disciplines that originated from ancient India and enlightens them about the significance of regular practice to ensure one's well-being, mindfulness, power & strength. I’ve composed this melody based on the Indian Classical Raga Yaman. Though this song is composed in a raga, I’ve arranged & music produced this song in such a way to transform you into an elated state that will open your heart!


Composer’s Notes:

Pertaining to the melody of this track, it is the adherence of the melody to a particular scale of Hindustani Classical Music Raag Yaman throughout; but that’s not done with it all, the most challenging goal I had in mind when producing this track was to envision the whole song to be really interesting, also coherent to one of the most popular expressive forms of Indian Dance Kathak. Taking the Hindi language to listeners across the globe. The genre of this track is World Music; the Sub-Genre is Indian Pop.

I had to draw the parallels with styles of Ghazal & Sufi Music that are allied to Hindustani Classical Music, merging and blending the arrangements. When I wrote the chords for the track first, I was so careful to align with the notes/swaras of the scale/raga so that it adds a lot to the enhancement of the melody and the song in total. One of the chord progressions employ D - Bm - G#diminished - Bm which seemed possible because of the melody; so until I arrived at where this seem to convey the mood of the melody, bearing in mind the lyrics, I worked with very many possibilities envisioning for a beautiful output.

Once I wrote the chords, I worked on the melodic aspects with regard to the arrangements, adding up the synth elements. The Rhythm adds to the forte of this track. The Rhythm Kicks & the Snares call up for a stable layer. The Tabla, one of the predominant Indian Percussion Instruments, is accustomed to the Hindustani Classical part of the melody & the groovy part of it is the Tabla & Dholak layers highlighting the Rhythm of this Song.

One of the interludes enumerates the shades of Jazz & the concluding interlude on my vocals is constructed by a quick intro to the Aalap - the exploration of the Raga, and the melodic arrangements matching this segment are the Tanpura and the synths gearing up for a crisp & dynamic Swara Progressions.

With various aspects such as the Indian Rhythm, the Pop elements, shades of Jazz & the Indian Swaras, all put together, this song attributes stand proof to the execution, the innovation, and the exposition of blending of the Indian Classical Music coupled with elements of Pop n Jazz.

Pitch of the Song - D; Tempo - 90; Time 4/4

Based on the notes of the Lydian Mode in Western Classical Music. In Indian Classical Music, this scale is known as Raag Yaman in Hindustani Classical Music & Raga Kalyani in Carnatic Classical Music.

This track commences with a short Adlib Intro segment.

Lyrics:

Yog hamaaree parampara hai
Yog se hee jeevan nikhara hai
Yog ko nij jeevan mein utaare
Chalo yog se khud ko sanvaare

Yog se hotee kanchan kaaya
Yog me har upachaar samaaya
Yog kare aur sabko seekhae
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye


Yog hai sabse oonchee kreeda
Door kare tan man kee peeda
Kriya ye to bahut hee pyaaree
Yog to hain sanskrti hamaaree
Yog se deergh aayu paaye
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye


Saanse bhee hai shuddh ho jaatee
Paavan oorja yog se aatee
Jeevan ka hissa yah khaas
Roj kare yoga abhyaas
Sada salaamat khud ko manaye
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa….

Yog se jisne svayam ko saadha
Paas na aae usake baadha
Yog se mile param vishraam
Yog hai svasth rahane ka naam
Yog se har vyaadhee ko harae
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye


Yog se hotee kanchan kaaya
Yog mein har upachaar samaaya
Yog kare aur sabko seekhae
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye
Aao yog divas manaye
