Music lovers living across the Indian Subcontinent must be aware of the phenomenon called “COKE STUDIO “..with its origin in our neighour Pakistan..it is spreasding like wild fire. People across the globe try to have a look at the youtube videos of The Coke Studio..the best part..it is live and the quality is never compromised.. Yaba yaba do..let me share some of them..
1.Garaj Baras, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Ali Azmat
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan provides the traditional classical touch while Ali Azmat at his rocking best… Sexy one.(one of the finest product of COKE STUDIO Pakistan)
2.Madari Sing-along version feat. Vishal Dadlani & Sonu Kakkar, Coke Studio
Possibly the most possibly famous track of Coke Studio India… Vishal Dadlani..at his best.. a fusion of Hindusthani semi classical music and Indie Pop.. But the show stealer is Sonu kakkar..who just walk away with all the praise.Special thanks to the guy on drums and Guitar.
3.Dama Dam Mast Kalander Coke Studio
Probably one of the most iconic religious song ever..It invokes the Sindhi GOD JHULELAL.. the language is a mixture of Urdu,Sufi..Sindhi and Punjabi words.. Loved by all across the Indian Subcontinent.. my second favourite version after Junoon.
4.Sundari Komola – Ram Sampath, Usri Banerjee & Aditi Singh Sharma – Coke Studio @ MTV Season 3
An evergreen bengali song..full of rustic Baul tunes from the alleys of Green Bengal..revamped with an attitude.
5.Lagi Lagi – Shantanu moitra feat Kaushiki Chakarvarty & Swanand Kirkire, Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2
A keertan.. a soulful chorus..the magical Kaushiki Chakroborty and the very talented Swanand Kirkire and Shantanu Moitra.. check out the musical Lyrics..Sweet Hindusthani..
