CokeStudio Season 9, Episode 6

Lagi Bina / Chall Mele Noon Challiye  by Sanam Marvi & Saieen Zahoor - Jaffer Zaidi.  What a clean rendition by Sanam Marwi to start the song. I had goosebumps when the padharo share des part made a quick appearance. She is closest to Abida parveen in terms of never losing a note even when she goes high … Continue reading CokeStudio Season 9, Episode 6

CokeStudio Season 9, Episode 1

Sasu Mangay - Naseebo lal and Umair Jaswal are in their elements in Sasu Mangay. I for one was so relieved to see Umair focussing on singing and not his distracting theatrics, and I quite liked his part.
