CokeStudio 10 – Episode 7, Season Finale

Previous Episode reviews - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Tera Naam - Trust Sajjad ali to give a geet, a ghazal-sue turn and make us go all of us gooey. A Very well presented song that has a lot of love wrapped.

Reviews for previous episodes from this season here -> 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Mast kalandar mast - I cannot understand what's going on with the producers of the studio.

CokeStudio10 Episode 2

You can read my thoughts on Episode 1 here Tinak Dhin - by Ali Hamza, Ali Sethi & Waqar Ehsin start things off with such a promise that you feel the studio will come down on its knees and then try to do floor snake dance but call it confused composition or the unnecessary addition of Waqar, the song … Continue reading CokeStudio10 Episode 2
