Coke Studio Season 12 | Episode 5| Balma | Feriha Parvez

From YouTube Channel

#CokeStudio12 presents Balma, a thumri with simple, sincere poetry that expresses the restlessness of a broken heart. In Fariha Pervez’s voice, Balma’s poetry turns to music within an ambient soundscape that gives centre-stage to the song’s flowing melodies. Produced by: Rohail Hyatt Coke Studio Season12, Episode 5


It reminded me of “Jagaave Saari Raina” By Rekha Bhardwaj from Dedh Ishqiya. I don’t know if it is the same music genre “thumri” but the feel is same – soothing, and a bit emotional. Loved it!

Until next review, Allah Hafiz!
