Balle Balle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Balle Balle (Gurmukhi: ਬੱਲੇ ਬੱਲੇ, Shahmukhi: بلّے بلّے) is a phrase used in many Punjabi songs to depict a feeling of happiness. It is used in the same way as the English expressions, "Hooray!" or "Hurrah!". It derives from the Sanskrit word भल्ल (bhalla), which means "auspicious, favourable".

It is used in Bhangra songs and dances generally set in the Punjab.
