Challa - Hari & Sukhmani at Coke Studio @ MTV

This is a reinterpretation of a Punjabi folk song about a boy meeting his lover by the well. In those days mixing of the sexes was not very common and lovers were always in the lookout for a private spot where they could meet. Invariably, that spot was by the village well. The song talks about the anticipation felt by the lovers before meeting and the sense of elation that follows.

 

 

For CS@MTV Season 2, this song has been re-interpreted with a dub step feel and the addition of Middle Eastern percussion and Israaj. 

 

Read the lyrics here:

 

Jaavo ni koi mod liyavoh,

Ni mere naal gaya ajj ladd ke,

Hoye allah karey jey aa jaave sohna,

Devaan jaan kadmaan vich rakh ke.

 

Ho Challa beri boohey, ve vatan mahi da door ey,

Ve jaana pehle poor ey, vey gall sun challeya

Chora ve kahda laya ee johraa.

 

Challa khooh tey dhariye,

Khooh tey dhariye,

Challa khooh tey dhariye,

Challa khooh tey dhariye,

Challa khooh tey dhariye,

Ve Gallan mooh tey kariye,

Ve sacchey rabb ton dariye,

Ve gall sun challeya,

Chhora ve kahda laya ee johra.

 

Allah beli, O mera Maula beli,

O mera Allah beli, mera Maula beli (4)

 

Challa kaaliyan mirchan,

Kaaliyan mirchan,

Challa kaaliyan mirchan,

Challa kaaliyan mirchan,

Challa kaaliyan mirchan,

Ve mohra pee ke marsaan,

Ve sire tere o chadsaan,

Ve gall sun challeya,

Chhora Ve saad key keeta ee kola.

 

Allah beli, O mera Maula beli,

O mera Allah beli, mera Maula beli (4)

 

Challa gall di gaani,

Challa gall di gaani,

Challa gall di gaani,

Challa gall di gaani,

Ve tur gaye dilllan dey jaani

 

Ve meri dukhaan di kahani

Ve aa key sun ja

Chhora ve kahda laya ee jora.

 

Allah beli, O mera Maula beli,

O mera Allah beli, mera Maula beli (4)

 

Jaavo ni koi mod liyavoh
