#CokeStudio Season 11 welcomes #AliHamza & #ZohaibKazi as new Producers

Karachi: The nation’s most exciting music platform, Coke Studio, is all set to achieve another landmark by launching its 11th Season in July. Coke Studio Pakistan will thus continue to take Pakistanis on its unique musical journey. In the last 10 years Coke Studio Pakistan’s reach has been monumental. The platform has been recognized for its originality and boldness not only in the country but also in over 150 other countries of the world. It has achieved unprecedented success, with more than one billion total views & plays, and gathering more than 3 million subscribers, making it Pakistan’s largest YouTube success.  

Coke Studio Season 11 now welcomes Ali Hamza and Zohaib Kazi as the new show producers. Ali Hamza’s experience in the music industry spans almost 2 decades. He is the founding member of the band Noori. Their debut album created a whirlwind all over the world. A first of its kind, it introduced the genre of pop-rock music to the Pakistani mainstream. In addition the album inspired the youth of Pakistan to take up the responsibility of doing something worthwhile for themselves and others. His most recent achievement, as a maestro of music industry was seen in Coke Studio Season 10, where his original track ‘Tinak Dhin’ received national acclaim and received accolades all across the Pakistani audience. The other producer of Season 11, Zohaib Kazi has been associated with Coke Studio for over 7 years, and was General Manager & Associate Producer for Season 7 till Season 9. In 2017, Zohaib took a hiatus from Coke Studio to reconnect and capture Pakistan’s folk essence through a travelogue styled music album. Season 11 is set to bring forth a new season of live performances with a diverse line up of pop, rock, folk and sufi artists from different genres. 

Speaking about Coke Studio’s landmark feat, the General Manager of Coca-Cola Pakistan, Rizwan U. Khan stated, “Music from Coke Studio has become intertwined with Pakistan’s identity, and the influence that Coke Studio has had on the masses in Pakistan is really huge. In the last decade, Coke Studio has committed itself to reintroducing the audience to timeless classics as well as discovering a new generation of musicians. As we welcome the new producers, I want to thank Strings from the bottom of my heart for their passion and commitment towards cementing Coke Studio as a world class asset.”

Strings were able to build strong bridges between the old and the new; and they enriched the more traditional genres like classical, folk and qawaali. In addition, they put forward a list of musicians and helped them to establish themselves as recognized artists. It is also important to highlight that Coke Studio would not have been possible without the unrelenting commitment and hard work of everyone else behind the scenes – the technicians and engineers, the set design and implementation crew, and all the other support staff. Coke Studio’s unparalleled success is due toexcellent team work; with everyone invovled collaborating and working very closely together to create something that is bigger than than anything seen before in the field of music. 

More details on Coke Studio’s artists, songs, collaborations, lyrics and television airing times will be shared in the coming months..

#CokeStudio - Coke Studio’s #Tajdar-e-Haram crosses 100 million views on YouTube!

#CokeStudio - Coke Studio’s #Tajdar-e-Haram crosses 100 million views on YouTube!



Lahore: The mega hit from Coke Studio’s Season 8, Tajdar-e-Haram has broken all records for Pakistani origin content, by becoming the first song to cross one hundred million views on YouTube. Instantly popular from the first day it was released, the song has come to symbolize the core vision of the iconic music platform Coke Studio and everything that it represents. Besides crossing the 100 million views milestone, Tajdar –e-Haram has received over 5 million engagements and has been viewed in no less than 186 countries across the world.   

From the first few chords, Tajdar-e-Haram established itself as an organic melody of a qawwali that has been forever etched in the very soul of the enthusiast of the genre. Atif Aslam softly led one into familiar ambient territory, with the rhythm of the tabla by Babar Ali Khanna and the foreseeable dominance of the tempo provided by Arsalan Rabbani on the harmonium. This ten minute rendition creates an almost hypnotic trance that engulfs listeners through its sheer magnetism.

“Coke Studio continues to break records and over the years it has driven the cultural leadership agenda of Pakistan, celebrating diversity while bridging barriers relevant to the youth of today,” stated Rizwan U. Khan, General Manager, Coca-Cola Pakistan, adding, “and now we are looking forward to Season 11 next year raising the bar even higher.”
   
Close on the heels of Tajdar-e-Haram is the beautiful song Afreen Afreen, from Coke Studio Season 9 which has so far got 99 million views and is all set to achieve the 100 million views milestone also soon. 

Coke Studio directly fuels music conversations through iconic storytelling and successful fusions of musical conventions; mixing old and new artists, and traditional and modern sounds. It is about juxtaposed music styles from diversified artists and times in Pakistan’s musical history. As Coke Studio continues on its journey, it owes a debt to Strings, the executive producers for Seasons 6 to 10, whose contribution to the growth of Pakistan’s most iconic music platform was significant, strengthening further the foundation for the future journey of Coke Studio.

Episode 7 - Coke Studio Season 10’s finale closes with Strings making a comeback

Episode 7 - Coke Studio Season 10’s finale closes with Strings making a comeback


Karachi: Strings, the executive producers of Coke Studio since the last four seasons, have been creating music that has kept audiences around the world hooked. They joined Ali Zafar and Ali Hamza for a rendition of Vital Signs’ ‘Us Rah Par’, making  a comeback as singers after 8 long years since their last performance of ‘Titliyaan’ in Season 2. 

Strings, an internationally renowned Pakistani pop rock band led by Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia, started their musical journey in 1988 and became an integral part of both the Pakistani and Indian music industry. They performed hits like Sar Kiye, Anjane, Duur, Zinda and Titliyaan in Season 1 and 2. 

Coke Studio’s rendition of ‘Us Rah Par’ is composed by Jaffer Zaidi who shares, “When we were recording the song, we could tell there was something missing. I wanted Strings to perform on the song and they agreed! I feel like it’s an important contribution because they knew Junaid Jamshed and Vital Signs personally and spent time with them. They bring a certain value to the song that I can’t describe. I’m very happy with the song.”


The finale Episode 7 will also feature 3 other songs including ‘Baanware’ by Aima Baig and Shuja Haider; ‘Tera Naam’ by Sajjad Ali and ‘Maula Tera Noor’ by Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan. 

Season 10 continues the philosophy of Coke Studio by creating music that resonates with people, music that is meaningful, soulful and appealing at the same time. This season was special as it paid tributes to 7 legends of the music industry of Pakistan who are no longer with us and through these tributes helped us rediscover our roots helping us take pride in our rich heritage.

The season followed the multiple music directors’ format with nine music directors, including Shani Arshad, Ali Hamza, Jaffer Zaidi, Shuja Haider, Sajjad Ali, Salman Ahmed, Mekaal Hasan, Sahir Ali Bagga and Strings working with different genres of music, with Strings acting as the executive producers. The line-up of artists comprised of more than 40 vocalists and 35 musicians in the house band, bringing many celebrated artists back into the spotlight including Attaullah Esakhelvi, Arieb Azhar, Humera Arshad, Sahir Ali Bagga and Salman Ahmed, while showcasing new talent of Pakistan including stars like Waqar Ehsin, Aima Baig, Faiza Mujahid, Irteassh, Zaw Ali and Sanwal Esakhelvi.  


Coke Studio has been creating fusion music that has continuously bridged barriers, in tandem with working for progress of music in the country consistently for the past 10 years. There hasn’t been anything bigger than this platform in our country, and music from Coke Studio has become intertwined with our identityas Pakistani.

Coke Studio 10’s Episode 5 showcases the breadth of Pakistan’s talent

Coke Studio 10’s Episode 5 showcases the breadth of Pakistan’s talent



Karachi:- Coke Studio 10 will release its fifth installment packed with exceptional music this weekend. Featuring four songs, Episode 5 will include ‘Bol’ by Shafqat Amanat Ali as a tribute to the iconic poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz; ‘Rangrez’ by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Sahir Ali Bagga; ‘Sab Maya Hai’ by the father son duo, Attaullah Esakhelvi and Sanwal Esakhelvi; and ‘Ujaalon Mein’ by Faraz Anwer and Faiza Mujahid. The Episode is set to be released digitally on Friday, September 8 and aired on all leading television channels on Saturday, September 9.

Often called Pakistan’s "greatest poet", Faiz Ahmed Faiz was an intellectual, a revolutionary poet, and one of the most celebrated writers of the Urdu language. Faiz’s poetry was influenced by the works of Allama Iqbal and Mirza Ghalib, and addressed the tyranny of military dictatorships and oppressions. Coke Studio’s rendition of the iconic poem ‘Bol’, advocating the importance of standing up and speaking the truth, is brought to life in a sweet ballad performed by Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan. 

Shafqat Amanat Ali began his journey with Coke Studio in Season 2 with ‘Aankhon Ke Sagar, ‘Khamaj’, ‘Ajab Khail’, and an interesting collaboration with Josh on their bhangra track, ‘Mahi Ve’. He returns to Coke Studio in Season 10 with his signature, dynamic voice demonstrating his versatility as a true musician. He observed, “Coke Studio has played a big part in promoting Pakistani music globally. They’ve managed to bring our forte and our specialty to attention; these are the sounds that make Pakistani music different.” 


The tribute is directed by the talented Shani Arshad who returns to Coke Studio Season 10 after his powerful compositions like Abida Parveen’s ‘Maula-e-Kul’ and Meesha Shafi’s ‘Bholay Bhalay’ in Season 9. 

‘Rangrez’, a modern Sufi song, encompasses the true meaning of devotional love. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan teams up with Sahir Ali Bagga to create magic with a fresh, new sound. In the musical composition by Sahir Ali Bagga, the tabla flirts with the shehnai and a flurry of backing vocals paint a vibrant surrounding as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s glowing and scintillating voice takes the foreground to bring out the rang and dhanak of the melody. 

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the modern torch-bearer of Qawwali, has been an integral part of Coke Studio from the very beginning, with his mesmerizing take of Ali Azmat’s Garaj Baras in Season 1, to his powerful rendition of Chaap Tilaak with Abida Parveen in Season 8. After a record-breaking, ‘Afreen, Afreen’ and finally, an enigmatic duet with the (Late) Amjad Sabri in Season 9, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan returns to Coke Studio 10 with some of the most sought after performances of the year. He shares, “Coke Studio has been very successful, and it’s all because of the music directors, music selection, the musicians and the overall talent in Pakistan. They have the credit of bringing the talent of the country to a global platform. The world now accepts and appreciates Pakistan’s musical talent. I think this is just the beginning, and Coke Studio has a long way to go.” 

In ‘Sab Maya Hai’, Attaullah Esakhelvi and Sanwal Esakhelvi bring the sounds of the soil to the airwaves by narrating a tale of depravity within the realms of love and money. Attaullah Esakhelvi’s unique yet familiar folk tone settle itself into the soundscapes that Shuja Haider has designed as Sanwal’s young, powerful voice lifts the melody with his energy. On a backdrop of groovy and emotive backing vocals, accented with the banjo and flute, this song is a journey towards uncovering the truth. 
Sanwal enthused, “I have been performing with my father for a long time, so on some level, it’s not too new for me, but yes, there is an excitement because it’s the first time we are together on Coke Studio. I was a little nervous but I enjoyed working with Shuja and am excited about my performance.” 

Well versed in traditional and folk music, Sanwal will be making his Coke Studio debut alongside his father Attaullah Esakhelvi in a beautiful rendition of a family classic. Attaullah sahab previously lent his voice to Coke Studio in Season 4 with popular renditions of ‘Pyaar Naal’ and ‘Ni Oothaan Waale’. 

A familiar rock-ballad ‘Ujaalon Mein’, finds a home at Coke Studio Season 10, as Faiza Mujahid’s electrifying voice is paired with the prolific guitarist, Faraz Anwar, in a delightful rendition of Pakistan rock anthem. Jaffer Zaidi masterfully creates a space that complements and accentuates the simplicity of the melody while staying true to the signature progressive-rock sound that comes with Faraz Anwar’s fiery musical personality to create a powerful rendition of a classic Pakistani rock song. 

Faiza admitted, “I was really happy that I got to work with Faraz and Jaffer. Coke Studio covers so many genres but I wanted to stick to my genre and performing with Faraz on his song has been amazing. The song is soft rock and what I loved about the collaboration was that it was an equal participation. The song is beautiful, and I think everyone will like it.” Singer-songwriter, Faiza Mujahid rose to fame with the famous song ‘Bandeya Ho’ from the movie ‘Khuda Kay Liye’. She makes her Coke Studio debut on Season 10 with her flair for rock music and versatile vocals. 

With an already large fan following, Faraz Anwar made his Coke Studio debut with band Mizraab in Season 4. He returned in Season 7 as a guitarist in collaboration with Sajjad Ali. Faraz Anwer joins the Coke Studio team in Season 10 to unearth some progressive rock ballads that stir the soul. 

The milestone Season 10 continues Coke Studio’s tradition of producing exceptional music and bringing together Pakistan’s most accomplished artists and musicians on one platform. With an interesting assortment of the renowned and established artists along with the new and rising stars, Episode 5 is all set to yet again captivate audiences though its soulful music.

Episode 4 of Coke Studio 10 Songs

Episode 4 of Coke Studio 10 Songs

Jindjaani
Produced & Directed by Strings
Music Directed by Ali Hamza
‘Jindjaani’, composition & lyrics by Ali Hamza
‘Jhanjar Phabdina’, originally composed by Wazir Afzal & lyrics by Baba Alamsiyah Posh


A bittersweet contemporary folk number, Jindjaani ventures into the rough yet rewarding terrain of love. Ali Hamza’s signature vocals take the mic alongside Nirmal Roy’s infectiously sweet energy to create a magical duet. Starting off on a note of heartbreak and dismay, a solid, traditional dholak and mandolin steer the song towards some sonic closure as it blends into the classic folk song, Jhanjar Phabdina. Bringing the sounds of the soil to the forefront, Ali Hamza’s reflects deeply on his musical roots to create a soundscape that is fresh and familiar at the same time.





Julie
Produced & Directed by Strings
Music Directed by Shani Arshad
Lyrics & Composition by Ali Zafar


A playful, modern tune, Julie is a bright take on heartbreak. Ali Zafar pulls out all the stops for this unrestrained ditty that has a pop-blues twist. He stars as a petulant lover agonizing over the tragedy of love lost. Shani Arshad masterfully showcases the complexity of the sentiment with his instrumentation; he brings forth the flares of a mournful shehnai to cut through an otherwise lively arrangement and the power of Danyal Zafar’s guitar solo bring out the fiery nature of the song. Written, composed and performed by Ali Zafar, the musician proves that he can’t help but push the envelope. 


Latthay Di Chaadar
Produced & Directed by Strings
Music Directed by Shani Arshad
Latthay Di Chaadar, originally composed by Khalil Ahmed & lyrics by Bashir Manzar
Dekh Tera, originally composed by Niaz Ahmed & lyrics by Muhammad Nasir


Colors seem more vivid in this song as a traditional South Asian wedding song blends with an 80s pop track in Shani Arshad’s latest concoction. An upbeat track nuanced with the rhythm of dandiyaan and a gliding flute, the song is further embellished by the fact that it is a duet. Farhan Saeed’s warm, tuneful take on ‘Dekh Tera’ paired with Quratulain Balouch’s textured, radiant voice belting out Latthay Di Chaadar makes for the perfect mixture. With a strong backing vocals section, the song finds itself exploring the musical spectrum of our vibrant traditional past. 




Naina Moray
Produced & Directed by Strings
Music Directed by Jaffer Zaidi


A dark storm of emotions, this thumri is fueled by the thunderous arrangement of Jaffer Zaidi. Honing in on the pain and anguish that comes with the void of heartbreak, the incredibly powerful and skillful duo of Javed Bashir & Akbar Ali cascade through the contours and complexities of Raag Bhairvi. The hues of the raag are further evoked through a confluence of the ethereal drone of the sarangi and a prolific guitar solo by Amir Zaki, exuding a sense of melancholy. Playing with the fluidity of the raag, the track is a masterful excursion that resonates with the profundity of sorrow.
