Pakistan’s biggest music show is coming back with its new season. Yes! Coke Studio Season 7 will be starting in September 2014.
Coke Studio is the most recognized platform for all of the musicians in the country. After propitiously completing its 6 seasons, Coke Studio is now gearing up for the 7th one. Since Rohail Hyatt stepped down earlier this year, the new season is produced by one of the most famous & experienced acts of the country i.e Strings(band). The duo of Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia are quite excited about the project.
In a recent interview they have revealed some of the new acts that have been finalized for the upcoming season. The names include Asrar, Jimmy Khan, Rahma Ali, Naseer & Shahab and Usman Riaz. According to Strings, it took them three months to produce the season and they have worked really hard on each and every song of the season so hopefully none of the songs will be getting an axe.
The sudden end to the last season of Coke Studio not only disappointed its fans, but also some of the musicians who were a part of it, hopefully that won’t be happening this year!
The official artists line-up is to be revealed
in a news conference on 26th August in Lahore. Till then, stay tuned!
