Coke Studio Season 12 | Episode 5 | Heerey | Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Aima Baig

From YouTube Channel

#CokeStudio12 presents a modern retelling of the tale of Heer-Ranjha, brought to life in the voice of Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Aima Baig. In a musical style that is new to his repertoire, Khan Sahab modernises this centuries-old saga, bringing it to the Heers and Ranjhas of today.


Rahat’s section is dull and boring. Aima’s section brings in some energy. She sounds just the same. I mean, yes, her voice will remain the same but there is no variation in this song. she is capable of doing that, so a bit disappoitned.

Rahat’s alaap reminds me of the alaap in Afreen Afreen, the only portion of that song that I HATE.

I don’t have anything against alaaps, but sometimes it is taken too far.

Until next review, Allah Hafiz!
