The Bansuri Notations and The Symbols
Understanding The Bansuri Notations
In Bansuri we can produce the lower P D N S R G M with a normal and less forceful blowing.
For getting the higher P D NS R G M we need to blow in to the flute a bit more forcefully with a focused embouchure.
For Lower octave notes there will no symbols added before or after the Notation, example – Lower octave Pa is denoted as P
For Higher octave notes there will be a symbol in front of the note, for example, Higher octave Re is denoted as R’
The symbol ‘ > ‘ means that we have to extend the note behind that symbol.
In some cases if we want to make groups in a series of notes then we put a comma (,) for those notes.
For example- PDN, DNS, NSR, SRG, RGM, GMP’
