Coke Studio Season 12, Episode 4


گلوں میں رنگ بھرے باد نو بہار چلے
چلے بھی آؤ کہ گلشن کا کار وبار چلے

قفس اداس ہے یارو صبا سے کچھ تو کہو
کہیں تو بہر خدا آج ذکر یار چلے

جو ہم پے گزری سو گزری مگر شب ہجراں
ہمارے اشک تیری عاقبت سنور چلے


I love Ali Sethi’s voice, whether it is his solo “Chandani Raat Badi Der Ke Baad Aati Hai” or “Tinak Dhin” from Coke Studio Season 10.

When you listen to it, it is seemingly effortless performance. But when you watch the video, you see how much effort actually goes into making it sound effortless. This is a slow burn song, giving me another ghazal sarayi nostalgia.

Until next review, stay blessed! Don’t forget to read other reviews and my books 🙂
