Mata Saraswati Sharada

Here is a Saraswati bhajan on the occasion of Vasant Panchami. Vasant Panchami marks the beginning of the Spring season in India. It is celebrated in honor of Maa Saraswati, the goddess of learning and all forms of music and art. The bhajan I sing here is from the 1977 movie Alaap. Based on Raga Bhairavi this bhajan was composed by Jaidev, one of my favorite music directors. 

Song: Mata Saraswati Sharada
Composer: Jaidev
Original Singers: Yesudas, Lata Mangeskar and Dilraj Kaur
Raag: Raag Bhairavi
Taal: Teen Taal (16 beats)
