Following up on one of my favorite posts – Coke Studio @ https://omarulhaq.wordpress.com/2009/04/11/coke-studio-ouh/ – I thought I would update you guys with some brilliant news.
After the popularity of Season 1, Coke Studio has recently returned to the recording studio with brilliant singers, an excellent band, and great passion for music. There are brand spanking new performances and episodes, which will be aired throughout the summer and the wait is finally over for all of us.
“This season, Coke Studio draws together the fundamentals of collaborative music that will showcase Pakistan’s rich music culture, by stitching into its fabric traditional artists, folk music influences and regional instruments in collaboration with Pakistan’s contemporary mainstream artists. With visionary Rohail Hyatt back at the helm, featuring this season are sensational stars Ali Zafar, Arieb Azhar, Atif Aslam, Javed Bashir, Josh, Noori, Riaz Ali Khan, Saieen Zahoor, Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan, Strings, and Zeb & Haniya.”
Someone just mentioned to me that Pakistani Idol has recently launched as well and I think it’s great that such talent is now finally being recognized and appreciated in our country.
For those of you who are not as familiar with the concept – “Coke Studio embodies a musical fusion of exciting elements and diverse influences, ranging from traditional eastern, modern western and regionally inspired music. Bringing alive the magic of live recordings and performances, Coke Studio prides itself on providing a musical platform which bridges barriers, celebrates diversity, encourages unity and instils a sense of Pakistani pride. ”
Can’t wait for the new season to begin. If you aren’t very familiar with Season 1, please check out the blog post link I have pasted above to get a better understanding of Coke Studio and it’s phenominal singers & performances before the new season begins.
