15 Coke Studio Songs That Will Touch Your Very Soul

Posted at November 23rd, 2017 | by Tithi Mukherjee | in Entertainment

They say nothing blurs barriers better than music. Pakistan and India have one thing that’s bringing both countries closer. All those even remotely passionate about music must have at some point,  put Coke Studio songs on loop. You have a song for every mood. What’s more amazing is the fact that they are bringing legends who are reprising their classic numbers. Here are some of the best Coke Studio songs that have managed to tug at heart strings.

 

Aaqa – Abida Parveen and Ali Sethi

The first collaboration between these two singers, Aaqa is a devotional strain that is a tribute sang for all the blessings bestowed. Parveen’s high notes ornament this poignant song powerfully.


 

Aaj Jaane ki Zid Na Karo – Farida Khanum

A legendary songstress lends her voice to this legendary song, making it one of Coke Studio’s most ethereal experiences.


Madari– Clinton Cerejo feat Vishal Dadlani and Sonu Kakkar

This peppy number is a submission to the almighty and whatever his will may be that makes the world go around. Vishal Dadlani’s niche voice adds to the playfulness of this song.


Nindiya Re – Kaavish

Kaavish’s dulcet tones blend beautifully with this dream of a song. One of the most soothing lullabies of our time if there ever was one.


 

Husna – Piyush Mishra

This song was written by the versatile Piyush Mishra fifteen years before it got performed at Coke Studio. This is a letter of love and loss during Partition from Javed to his lover Husna. Lyrics are heartwrenching.


 

Laadki – Sachin-Jigar, Tanishka, Kirtidan and Rekha Bhardwaj

A melodious journey of a daughter as she turns into a woman and her constant dialogue with her father. This song is capable to bringing tears to even the most unfeeling of individuals. Little Tanishka, Sachin’s daughter sounds like the little bird that she is and Rekha Bhardwaj perfectly compliments the parts of the grown woman.


 

Chaap Tilak – Abida Parveen Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Another legendary collaboration, this song is bound to raise goosebumps with the sheer range of Abida Parveen’s voice. Rahat Fateh Ali is no less when it comes to the subtle crests and troughs in tune. The chorus adds to its grandiose performance.

 


 

Rang – Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Amjad Sabri

A ‘kalaam’ of Amir Khusrau brings the two great gharanas of Ghulam Farid Sabri with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan through their successors and merges them into this soulful qawwali.


 

Bholay Bhalay – Meesha Shafi

Psychedelic guitar with traditional sitar tunes accentuates Meesha Shafi’s folksy, grungy voice in this trippy number.


Alif Allah – Arif Lohar and Meesha Shafi

Another soulful Punjabi sufi song sung in folksy voices of Lohar and Shafi. They bring out the intense pleading that this song is about through its composition.

 


 

Ranjish hi Sahi – Ali Sethi

Ali Sethi could very well be Pakistan’s Arijit Singh with this song about heartbreaks and melancholy. His soothing tones and the heartache inducing lyrics speak to anyone who’s ever been hurt in love.

 


 

Amay Bhashaili Re – Alamgir and Fariha Parvez

This folk song hails from Bangladesh which talks about uniting India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Fariha Parvez’s melodious reprise from the song adds a fresh new texture to this traditional song.


Baliye-Laung Gawacha – Quratulain Baloch and Haroon Shahid

A peppy twist to a traditional Punjabi wedding song. Baloch and Shahid’s electrifying voices pump this number. It’ll make anyone dance and sing out loud even if you don’t know the lyrics. Put this on loop and you’ll learn in no time.


 

Chaudhary – Amit Trivedi feat Mame Khan

Amit Trivedi gives this Rajasthani folk song a contemporary twist within changing its roots. Mame Khan retains the colloquial tinge in this soulful ballad about a young girl falling in love with an older man.


Sawan mein – Jasmine Sandlas, Sachin-Jigar, Divya Kumar

An underrated number, this grungy number is made foot tapping by Jasmine Sandlas’ energy and high notes. It speaks of the pain inflicted by a lover who chooses to leave and this song makes sure you feel it seething under your skin.
