OlRock Music Show on ARY Musik, Watch Episode 3 Online

by Danish Mughal - on Jul 31st 2011

OLrock Music Show ARY musikThe following videos from OL Rock Music Show are embedded just to let our visitors/readers know how boring a youth music show can be ! Don’t believe me ? Okay, you would only come to know after watching it.

Though, It would be unfair to praise here the effort of refreshing the old Pakistani Hit Songs via this show. Like tracks such as Aajana, Qarar and Laiyaan Laiyaan are definitely recorded with a fresh new feel. but again the reviews are mixed as some are praising the cover songs, while others believe the old melodious tunes are just being ruined and nothing else.

Other than that, as the show OlRock is sponsored by a beverage company, the youth show looks more like a cheap advertisement and doesn’t  really engage “youth” in it. If you remember about Dreamers on Aag TV, you might have some idea what I am talking about.

If you are still curious to know more about OLRock do watch the episode below at your own risk :) (more…)

The show, which will be recorded next month, will feature two Pakistani acts; Atif Aslam and Strings among other Indian musicians such as Rabbi Shergill, Euphoria, Indian Ocean and Shilpa Rao.

After learning about the current line-up it is worth praising that MTV didn’t pick any of the Coke Studio @ MTV artist just to avoid any duplication of artists. MTV India’s Unplugged is expected to go on air this October.

Here is one video performance from the international and world renown music show Unplugged:  (lets see what Indian Unplugged offers this time) (more…)
