This is a show that changed the history of the Pakistani music. The show that is a fusion of the diverse musical influences in Pakistan, including eastern classical, folk, qawwali, ghazal, bhangra, Sufi, contemporary hip hop, rock and pop music. And, this is the show that changed the course of the Pakistani music all over the world and made it tremendously successful in the past 9 years. This is Coke studio, that gives us a biggest good news and announces season 10 with the most brilliant singers than ever before and it’s like a blessing for many.
People are expecting even more this time and Coke Studio definitely has faced a big huge challenge. In the last season, Coke Studio was on every person’s top played music list including. Songs like “Afreen Afreen” that is still on everyone’s mind and heart.
Momina Mustehsan became every guy’s crush on social medias after this song. Other than “Afreen Afreen” there were other amazing songs and the singers which got their big space in not only coke studio but in everyone’s heart.
Sheraz Uppal and Rafaqat Ali Khan,
Noori and Shilpa Rao,
Amjad Sabri and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan,
Meesha Shaffi and Naeem Abbas Rufi,
and many other talented artists rocked season 9. Hence, previous season’s success is a biggest challenge for Coke Studio this season to bring even more than previous 9 years.
This season will give you goosebumps after viewing the crazy line-up of extra talented singers!
The beauty of this season increased when we came up with a news that not only Junaid Jamshed but other honourable personalities who left us in past few decades are getting tribute from each talented singer. There would be at least one tribute song that’d start from,
Faiz Ahmed Faiz in the form of “Bol Kay Lab Azaad Hain” ft Shafqat Amanat Ali
Dum Mast Qalandar ft Umair Jaswal and a Qawwal party as one to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Sehwan Sharif
Ali Sethi will remember Mehdi Hasan by singing “Ranjish Hi Sahi”
Ali Zafar, Ali Hamza and Strings will join forces in Us Rah Par to remember Junaid Jamshed
More tributes are to follow with a wider roster of producers and the songs, like always, songs will mostly be covers and folk tunes with every producer giving a minimum of one original song each.
The other interesting thing about this season is that for the first time, the two most handsome brothers are to seen together in the song; Danyal Zafar playing guitar in one Ali Zafar’s song which is expected to be similar to Rockstar this time too.
All other news is kept to be secret to increase your curiosity. The whole new season is bound to give us the feels this time especially when so many young and unknown faces are also set to partake in it. The show will kick off on August 14 with a collaborative rendition of Pakistan’s national anthem. Till then, keep your fastidiousness under control and enjoy summers! 😉
