Baisakhi Songs

Singing and dancing are an intrinsic part of the joyful festival of Baisakhi ! To celebrate the Baiskhi Festival exuberant young boys and girls of Punjab come out in the fields in their colorful attire to participate in the traditional Baisakhi songs and dance. It is on the occasion such as Baisakhi and Lohri that one can get a feel of the rich folk culture of Punjab. Culturally, the state of Punab is divided into three regions - Malwa, Majha and Doaba. In present time, Malwa is said to represents the spirit of Punjabi folk traditions.

Typical Baisakhi folk songs in Punjabi depict the joy of the farmer who is happy with the bountiful harvest at the time of Baisakhi celebrations. Love songs besides other songs with fast beat are also quite popular on the occasion. Bhangra and gidda accompany Baisakhi songs and adds joy to the merriment.

Most often Punjabi folk songs are sung on the beats provided by the drum where 'Dhol' and 'Dholik' is the male and female drum respectively. Other musical instruments traditionally used in Punjabi music are 'toombi', 'algoza', 'chheka', 'chimta', 'kaanto', 'dhad', 'daphali' and 'manjira'.

Ade chitte oye, ade kale
Ek pal..

Chtthi Aayi Hai
Album: Naam
Singer: Pankaj Udhas

Chitthi Aayi Hai Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Chitthi Aayi Hai Vatan Se
Chitthi Aayi Hai
Bade Dinon Ke Baad,
Hum Bevatnon Ko Yaad
Vatan Ki Mitti Aayi Hai,
Chitthi Aayi Hai.

Upar Mera Naam Likha Hai,
Andar Ye Paigham Likha Hai
O Pardes Ko Jaane Vaale,
Laut Ke Phir Na Aane Vaale
Saat Samundar Paar Gaya Tu,
Humko Zinda Maar Gaya Tu
Khoon Ke Rishte Todh Gaya Tu,
Aankh Mein Aansoo Chhodh Gaya Tu
Kum Khaate Hain Kum Sote Hain,
Bahut Zyaada Hum Rote Hain
Chitthi Aayi Hai.

Sooni Ho Gaeen Shehar Ki Galiyaan,
Kaante Ban Gaeen Baag Ki Kaliyaan
Kehte Hain Saawan Ke Jhule,
Bhool Gaya Tu Hum Nahin Bhoole
Tere Bin Jab Aayi Diwali,
Deep Nahin Dil Jale Hain Khaali
Tere Bin Jab Aayi Holi,
Pichkaari Se Chhooti Goli
Peepal Soona Panghat Soona
Ghar Shamshaan Ka Bana Namoona
Fasal Kati Aayi Baisakhi,
Tera Aana Reh Gaya Baaki
Chitthi Aai Hai ...

Pehle Jab Tu Khat Likhta Tha
Kaagaz Mein Chehra Dikhta Tha
Bund Hua Yeh Mel Bhi Ab To,
Khatam Hua Yeh Khel Bhi Ab To
Doli Mein Jab Baithi Behna,
Rasta Dekh Rahe The Naina
Maein To Baap Hoon Mera Kya Hai,
Teri Maan Ka Haal Bura Hai
Teri Biwi Karti Hai Seva,
Soorat Se Lagti Hai Bewa
Toone Paisa Bahut Kamaaya,
Is Paise Ne Desh Chhudaaya
Panchhi Pinjra Todh Ke Aaja.
