CokeStudio Season 12, Episode 6, Produced by Rohail Hyatt

Previous episode links here - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Mundeya - Yes, so a 'spanish-sque' start of this song is the doing of some amazing string play. QB makes a quiet call first to Mundeya and I almost immediately understood that she would not be used well in the song. More on that later*. Ali Sethi … Continue reading CokeStudio Season 12, Episode 6, Produced by Rohail Hyatt

Review of past episodes here --> episode 1, episode 2, episode 3 and episode 4 Heeray - There is a reason why I cringe every time I read a comment on videos of my favourite artists that says 'I wish Bollywood finds you'.

Episode 1 review here Saiyaan - Shuja - I would get late to office if am listening to a song from him. I like his sincerity (which is now being promoted a lot, I must add).

Season Premiere Wohi Khuda hai - Trust Rohail Hyatt to kickstart the season with a gem that didn't really need polishing, till he polished it and presented to us. Atif Aslam, who has done more than his fair share of mesmerising work for Rohail Hyatt in the studio, gets spiritual and aces it.
