Coke Studio Season 9 | Episode 1 | Afreen Afreen

After watching Tera Woh Pyar for a million times, I moved on to other songs.

Afreen Afreen was naturally the next pick. No, it wasn’t me. It was YouTube’s algorithm that showed me the related videos.

Oh, alright! Another song by Momina Mustehsan, I thought. Besides, who doesn’t love the Afreen song by the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan?

I like the recreation of the song and how the female portion is weaved into the original. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan pays tribute to his uncle and does a flawless job as usual.

I have watched this song many a times, but there is one thing that bothers me. The alaap towards the end becomes a bit of stretch and it bothers me, like BOTHERS me.

But, that could just be me.
