Coke studio brings in artists from different backgrounds and creates this live music magic that anytime you listen to and will get instant feels. Here’s a list of some Coke Studio songs from India and Pakistan that have got our special love !
Husna by Piyush Mishra
Written and composed by Piyush Mishra; 15 years before this song actually featured on Coke Studio, it talks about the tumult and upheaval experienced by two lovers, as well as India and Pakistan after the partition.
Piyush Mishra’s voice and those very powerful words. Yehi pyaar hai.
Afreen Afreen- Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Momina Mustehsan
Originally sung by the legendary, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab two decades ago, performed by his nephew, and maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & debutant, Momina Mustehsan. This song is a Beautiful transformation of a Qawwali into an unplugged track. It makes me do that puppy eye emoji irl.
Jhalliya by Javed Bashir, Masooma Anwar & Shahzad Nawaz
One can be rest assured of some high quality melody rendition when a classical virtuoso like Javed Bashir has his stamp on it. Same is true of Jhalliya! Javed Bashir again comes up with a masterly vocal performance displaying his range, singing style, soulfulness and effortless variations all packaged in a single performance!
Chaudhary by Mame Khan
Mame khan literally nailed this one with his traditional folk voice and the magical music created by Amit Trivedi is an add-on. Definitely one of my fav feel-good songs.
Chaap Tilak by Abida Parveen & Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
When Abida Parveen and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sing together, you ought to get goosebumps. Both delivers a power-packed performance. This one would strike straight into your heart!!!!!
Sawan Mein by Sachin-Jigar, Divya Kumar & Jasmine Sandlas
A song about broken heart, but Jasmine’s beautiful voice ends up oddly comforting you. A heartening rendition you should listen to.
Bewajah by Nabeel Shaukat Ali
The Lyrics, along with the mesmerizing voice of winner of Sur-Kshetra, Nabeel Shaukat Ali is, as Chandler Bing would say, perfection. MUST LISTEN.
Kyun Na – Amit Trivedi, Dhruv Sangari & Karthik & Chandana Bala
Not many people have heard of it?? it’s an underrated coke studio gem. This song offers you a new perspective. Vocals, music and deep lyrics everything is just so so perfect.
Rabba by Amit Trivedi, Tochi Raina, Jaggi
You listen to it once, you listen to it again on loop. Gotta follow the rules. ALSO HOW BEAUTIFUL IS THAT FLUTE PART? WOW. Tochi Raina earthen voice + Amit Trivedi’s brilliant composition is one awesome combination.
