Coke Studio Season 11 | Episode 6 | Zamana

Disclaimer: This review is an opinion of a music listener. I have no musical background or technical expertise. If anybody disagrees with anything in this post… well, they will have to live with it. I can’t help them 🙂

First and foremost, I apologize for late review. The coke studio episodes didn’t come last week and I assumed that it is over. Bah.

Tere Liye, Ali Azmat, Riaz Qadri and Ghulam Ali Qadri

The rock star Ali Azmat is back with a rocking song.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.

Ilallah, Sounds of Kolachi

Beautiful lyrics. Very melodious. And sweet vocals.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.

Dil Hai Pakistan

This one brings Hassan Jahnagir and Gul Panra together for immensely popular Hawa Hawa.

This is my favourite from the episode. I didn’t even know Hassan Jahangir when I heard the ‘Hawa Hawa’ for the first time. I liked the video, the song and even the two remixes – from Chalis Chaurasi and Mubarakan.

This one is also interesting. I particularly liked the female section in the sweet voice of Gul Panra. Her slightly different pronunciation bettered the charm of the song.

Rating: 4/5 stars.

Other observations:

  • Hawa Hawa was my favourite.
  • Illallah first section sounded like “Sooha Saaha” from Highway.
  • I have added far too many links in this post, but I felt it was needed.

Thanks for reading.
