Coke Studio’s Musical Voyage continues with Episode 2! : ON AIR JUNE 5TH 2011
The Coke Studio journey continues with Episode 2 airing on June 05 2011, presenting a new palette of genres and artists, and conveying yet another kaleidoscopic view on the diversity of music in Pakistan. With Episode 2, expect a selection of fusion songs that pay tribute to the unique and enduring traditions of classical, folk and qawwali music, side by side with modern compositions by popular contemporary artists.
Coke Studio’s second episode will feature Sajjad Ali’s “Kirkir Kirkir”, an up-tempo and lively modern track, with tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a rambunctious jhol on the dholak.
Episode 2 will also introduce a traditional Rajasthani song, “Senraan Ra Baairya” by classical musician Asif Hussain Samraat and Coke Studio houseband member and upcoming pop artist Zoe Viccaji. Sung in an obscure dialect Marwari, this song combines the delicate subtlety of the light classical style of thumri with contemporary accompaniment with Zoe Viccaji’s ambient vocals adding an ethereal dimension to the traditional composition.
