    Pee Jaon originally performed and composed by Farhan Saeed, Momina Mustehsen & Saad Sultan
    Additional lyrics by Musheer Kazmi (Chandni Raatein)
    Music Directed by Shuja Haider
    Produced by Strings

    A truly, well-crafted melody – ‘Sab Jag Soye’ is a duet performed by Quratulain Balouch and music director and vocalist, Shuja Haider. Taking the reigns from the beginning, the single opens with QB holding her own in a track that is impeccably designed around her voice, as the brooding and effective bass guitar riff makes way for a complete change in tempo. Through its energetic music structure – Shuja’s strong, melodic vocal abilities – the constant shifting of the pace makes the journey through the track unpredictably wonderful.

    Nimma Nimma by Shani Arshad

    Lyrics by Sabir Zafar
    Music Directed by Shani Arshad
    Produced by Strings

    An affectionate ode to a mother, ‘Nimma Nimma’ explores the longing of love and nostalgia capturing a sea of emotions through the duration of the track. Composed and performed by music director, Shani Arshad – the beautiful and subtle songwriting by Sabir Zafar elevates the bar even further. An irresistible melody, underlining the eastern sensibilities with the string section and soft drums to accentuate the soundscape – Shani’s warm and soulful vocals are at once honest and heartrending. The interval featuring Sajid’s flute solo is particularly special as it translates the emotions of the singer and the lyrics into the piece that resonates through this deeply moving and heartfelt tribute. (Source: COKE STUDIO)


     

    O Re by Noori

    Music Directed by Noori
    Produced by Strings
    ‘O Re’ is a pop-rock track that’s brimming with nostalgia with an up-tempo, feel-good melody that’s as refreshing as is addictive. Written, composed and performed by Noori – the tune has stayed in the duo’s vault with some hundred odd unreleased tracks with Ali Hamza playing with this one for a good 8 years. ‘O Re’ is crammed full of energetic lively antics from the accordion solo adding a celebratory atmosphere to the soft alluring vocals, or the infectious chorus to impeccable guitar skills spewing from Ali Noor. The love-drenched single might be a rare release but the kind that won’t leave your mind long after you’ve asked it to.(Source: COKE STUDIO)


     

    Dil Kamla by Natasha Khan & Faakhir Mehmood

    Traditional Folk
    Lyrics by Sabir Zafar
    Music Directed by Faakhir Mehmood
    Produced by Strings

    A traditional Punjabi folk, ‘Dil Kamla’ is a beautifully composed collaboration performed in warm overtones by Natasha Khan, with music director Faakhir Mehmood. A delightfully romantic single, ‘Dil Kamla’ parks itself in the easy-listening category with the simple music arrangement merging seamlessly into the melody. The serene accordion pieces transport you to a familiar warm place as Natasha and Faakhir wander through a myriad of romanticism. Whilst the addition of the classic pop-rock power chord, and guitar riff drives the chorus layered with the choir style harmonies that create a delicate, and intricate soundscape of a track you can’t get enough of.(Source: COKE STUDIO)

     


     

    Rang BY Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Amjad Sabri

    Kalaam of Ameer Khusro
    Music Directed by Shani Arshad
    Produced by Strings
    In all its melodramatic glory, and approximately 40 years ago, a shrine echoed with the sound of a traditional qawwali performed in an epic collaboration by the maestros, Ghulam Farid Sabri with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The divine kalaam of Amir Khusro – ‘Rang’ – soared through the skies. In what has been deemed as the most anticipated performance of Coke Studio’s Season 9, the two families return to the platform for the first time since, as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Amjad Sabri collaborate to perform the very track, four decades later.

    Recorded in the first and only take, as the song’s melodic heart unfolds Rahat’s vocals float over the top, forging ahead into well-known territories. With the rasp of Sabri’s rumbling vocals fuelled by a momentary key change, combining the sounds of the past and the present whilst igniting the sense of nostalgia most gracefully – carrying you off to somewhere else entirely. Embodying the classic traditional essence, the kalaam comes alive enriched by the raw, soulful inflections warming your heart and soul for many more decades. (Source: COKE STUDIO)
