Pakistan’s most anticipated musical TV series Coke Studio kicked off on 11th August 2017 marking the iconic anniversary of the nation’s favorite music phenomenon, Strings have returned as the original music directors following last year’s steps and along with the pretty much perpetual artists performing, there were many new additions as well.
Illustrious and veteran pioneers of Pakistani music scene, Sajjad Ali have introduced his daughter Zaw Ali and Atta Ullah Khan Esakhelvi has introduced his son Sanwal Esakhelvi respectively and ladies heartthrob the ‘Rock star’ Ali Zafar have inaugurated his brother.
SAJJAD ALI & ZAW ALI
Looking at these new and vibrant singers, first of the three we have Zaw Ali who’ve been helping her beloved father in directing his music videos and she’s also got a tight grip over the inherent talent of singing, her debutante song in this CS season named ‘Ronay Na Diya’ was with her own father and trust me, she has done utter justice to the song and from Facebook to the kingdom of Twitterati almost everyone has been buzzing about it, keeping our expectations at place she’s very much continued her father’s legacy and trademark.
ATTAULLAH ESAKHELVI & SANWAL ESAKHELVI
Talking of Sanwal, astonishingly he’s also debuted performing beside his father Atta Ullah Khan and he stands firmly with his crispy and melodious ‘Sab Maya Hai’ which has also conquered numerous applauds and whispers. Pretty much going strong as we know it.
ALI ZAFAR & DANYAL ZAFAR
Daniyal Zafar, on the other hand, have broken the jinx of performing beside the family member and his debutant song was along with the well known MominaMustehsan (Also a Coke Studio discovery) and they had done this debut called Muntazir, clinching claps and pats.
As we know, the fathers and the elder brother are very much punching in making the Coke Studio a medium of transferring their credentials and experiences in their other family members who share the same aura of music and look themselves as the successors of their elders. It looks like Pakistani classic and modern pop musical scenario has a bright future with everyone loving (Huh, there are some bad ones too) and appreciating the new fusions and the newcomers.
