#CokeStudio12 presents an incarnation of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s poetry in the voice of Atif Aslam with Aaye Kuch Abr. Speaking of solitude and finding personal solace in life’s little pleasures, the ghazal provides a space for one to find the common humanity in one’s own experiences.

Coke Studio Season 12, Episode 6


آئے کچھ ابر کچھ شراب آئے
اسکے بعد آئے جو عذاب آئے
کر رہا تھا غم جہاں کا حساب
آج تم یاد بے حساب آئے
اس طرح اپنی خامشی گونجی
گویا ہر سمت سے جواب آئے
بام مینا سے ماہتاب اترے
دست ساقی میں آفتاب آئے


Remember the time when people said Atif Aslam cannot sing? Ever since he has begun his spiritual journey, he’s become this person who’s so controlled and poised in his singing. Whether it is Tajdar-e-Haram in Season 8 and Koi Toh Hai in Season 12.

Apart from Atif’s soulful voice; the meaningful lyrics and soothing music remind me of the good ol’ Ghazal Khwani days. A very nice performance.

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