What to expect from Coke Studio Season 6?
Pakistan music industry is the most renowned music industry of Asia. It has produced amazing talent like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Noor Jahan, Mehdi Hasan, Vital Signs, Junoon and recently, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shafqat Amanat Ali, Atif Aslam, Ali Zafar, Hadiqa Kiani and many more.
In the music scene, Pakistani singers are considered of much higher class than the singers of India. Recent winning by Nabeel Shaukat, a Pakistani singer, in Sur Kshetra proves that too. Many Bollywood movies feature songs sung by Pakistani singers. The Coke Studio session had have happened in both Pakistan and India. The Indian Coke Studio which was conducted in association with MTV did not receive as much fame and was not able to create as much hype as the Pakistani one did. In Pakistan, this year, Coke Studio is happening again.
Coke Studio Season 6 is expected to start in the month of May, although final date is yet to be announced. Pakium will inform you as soon as the dates are announced. We are expecting the same format of 5 episodes. The expectations with Coke Studio are high this year too. Three veteran singers who will be a part of Coke Studio season 6 are Abrar ul Haq, Ali Zafar and Ali Azmat. (Ali Zafar backed out at last moment)
The new addition in the Coke Studio family is Abrar ul Haq. He confirmed it on his Facebook status that he’s going to be a part of Coke Studio 6, and with this announcement his fans are very excited as surely he will inject a new taste to Coke Studio music. Abrar ul Haq recently joined a political party and is famous for his social work specially his hospital which runs on charity. His Punjabi songs will definitely add lots of excitement in the season.
Ali Zafar will be participating in Coke Studio for the 2nd time. He has already been part of Coke Studio season 2. Ali Zafar is also famous on other side of the border and has sung songs for Indian movies. He also received Dadasaheb Phalke Award in India in 2012. Along with his singing skills, he has won hearts of many with his acting skills. Let’s have high expectations from this multi talented guy in Coke Studio 6.
Ali Azmat is also a part of Coke Studio season 6. This will be his second time as he participated in very first season of Coke Studio. His song Garaj Baras feat. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan got very famous from season 1. Hoping he will delight us from his amazing voice and style again.
Along with these three, the others who are expected to be part of Coke Studio season 6 are Alamgir and Gohar Mumtaz. This will be a debut in Coke Studio for Alamgir. Jal band performed in Coke Studio season 4, this time Gohar will be performing without Farhan as he has left the band.
Coke studio started 5 years back in 2008 and has raised the standard of the Pakistan music. We hope Coke Studio breaks it self made records and provide audience with ultimate soul satisfying experience.
