We bring you this week two popular Bollywood numbers by famous composer duo Shankar-Jaikishan - Jaane Kahan Gaye Woh Din (Mera Naam Joker) and O Mere Sanam, O Mere Sanam (Sangam).
Both songs are composed in raga Shivranjani, a Shankar-Jaikishan favorite.
You may wonder why the two songs composed in the same raga sound so different.
Well, that is because a raga is NOT a tune- it is simply a structure of ascending and descending notes (aarohi and avrohi). Within that structure, the composer is at liberty to improvise and devise different tunes.
