Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa
Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal & Brothers and Natasha Baig

‘Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa’ – the timeless and unforgettable poetry, penned in 1909 and 1913 – offers a glimpse into the profound world of Allama Iqbal. The angst filled words performed with just as much prowess by Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad & Brothers alongside Natasha Baig – is the debut of Iqbal’s work being performed on Coke Studio.

The hard-hitting emotions transcend the entire duration of the track. The intense melody embellished with choruses explores the genre of rock and the signature sound of the qawwali in its most authentic form. An original composition by Munshi Razi Uddin, the track also features the work of Amjad Hyderabadi and Omar Khayyam.

Baalkada
Lucky, Naghma and Jimmy Khan

On this collaborative single, ‘Baalkada’ – the trio: Jimmy, Lucky and Naghma display their playful and entertaining self at their best. A folk tune with a ‘tappa’ style composition, the track has been contemporized using modern synth and a whimsical bass line. A groove that’s full on funk paired with humorous lyrics, and a catchy hook plays into the success of ‘Baalkada’. In the first appearance of transgender on Coke Studio, Lucky and Naghma really showcase their signature style with a lot of grace.

Rap Hai Saara
Lyari Underground Band and Young Desi

In their first collaborative endeavor: Lyari Under Ground (L.U.G) and Young Desi’s ‘Rap Hai Saara’ hits you with a bang. A full on hip-hop/rap single, the two components: the hip-hop beat and the rap verses – in Balochi, English, Urdu and Punjabi – come together seamlessly. The obvious standout element being the beat which is usually looped and sampled on traditional tracks but is played live by the house band. The chemistry of L.U.G and Young Desi is fully realized on ‘Rap Hai Saara’ as they take over the main stage in their effortless styles and confident swag.

Main Irada
Haniya Aslam, Rachel Viccaji, Shamu Bai, Ariana & Amrina

There are several elements at work in making ‘Min Irada’ an iconic women’s anthem. A straight forward pop-rock track, it features empowering lyrics whilst including a wide array of female voices of varied backgrounds. From Haniya and Rachel’s textured earthy vocals to Shamu Bai’s unrestrained pitch-perfect voice, paired with Ariana and Amrina’s bright and chirpy chants. The first song comprising equal number of men and women performing on stage in Coke Studio’s history – ‘Main Irada’ creates a canvas to allow different types of women to be included and celebrated in the same space.
