Episode 9: Coke Studio Season 11 (Aftab)

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 🙂

Ko Ko Korina, Ahad Raza Mir & Momina Mustehsan

Ahad Raza Mir is finally here. I was looking forward to his performance. I just love this lad. I was glad with the song selection but how disappointing.

The original, even if it was decades ago, was and still is a foot tapping dance number. This version, was slow and not so peppy. It felt dull.

Rating: 3/5 stars.

Aurangzeb, Mughal-e-Funk

Okay song.

Rating: 3/5 stars.

Dildar Sadqay, Jawad Ahmad & Elizabeth Rai

This was a nice song. I loved the banter in the lyrics. Elizabeth has a very thin voice, which I felt didn’t go well with Jawad’s vocals.

Rating: 4/5 stars.

Other observations:

  • Dildar Sadqay is pick of the this episode.
  • Ahad, good to see you sing. You’ve a nice voice.
  • From season 11, my favourites or the songs that I replay over and over again; are incidentally both Momina’s – Roye Roye and Mahi Aa Ja.

Thanks for reading.
