If I was told 10 years ago something like Coke Studio was going to emerge, I would have never believed it. Since the progress of ideas and innovations, Pakistan and its music industry has truly been extraordinary. Coke Studio is providing a platform for all those talents, promoting their each individual style of performance, making them stars in just moments.

Many years ago, a lean young man came to Karachi from East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) with hopes of better future in the music industry. He started his struggle with gigs at a cafe located on Tariq road, Karachi. Later on, this young man appeared on TV with his guitar, his only companion in this city, on Sohail Rana’s music show for children kids show. Who knew that in future this young man will become the pioneer of pop music in Pakistan, his Albela Rahi was the official beginning of pop music in Pakistan. We know this Albela Rahi as Alamgir, One of the most electrifying performers Pakistan ever produced on musical front.
Now a days there are many serious things to write about but I am in a mood to not to be serious. May be I want to enjoy the peace which is left somewhere in me.

So starting with Shehki, yeah he is famous with that name. Walking on a beach and singing that everywhere whatever he finds it is somehow related to some particular person.
I have never been a “Coke Studio” fan, but this year I have no idea but I have to confess that there is some strange charm in it this year that I am somehow following it. Well as Coke Studio Season 3 has begun and the day it started everyone was talking about it. I missed the show as I was at my workplace while the show was on.
Anyways, as I said everyone was talking about it so it was almost impossible for me to give it a chance to entertain me. Well what I have observed is one song or one performance which is most talked about, and that is Arif Lohar’s performance. I listened to it after one of my friend asked me to download this song for him well trust me I have not downloaded it yet but yes I have listened to it many times by now.
