People were really excited about the release of Season 10 of Coke Studio. Coke Studio is a musical platform of country where young and emerging singers some together along stars to perform. For past 9 seasons Coke Studio has given so many hit songs that people were really hyped about this season but until now it has not turned out to be a great one. There are few Hit songs but other than that nothing worth listening.
Episode 4 released last week and it had the same fate as the first 3 episodes had. There were few good songs and there were few bad ones as well. The first song released Naina Moray by Akbar Ali and Javed Bashir was a really good song. The song had a good combination of singers with Jaffer Zaidi giving a very soothing music. Javed Bashir is surely the singer to listen his voice is mesmerizing with Akbar Ali also performing nicely. It was Amir Zaki‘s last performance and it clearly showed how great a musician he was. Overall a very good performance.

After all the disappointments of previous episodes people were expecting the tides to turn in favor of Coke Studio and this time they can give a good episode. The artist of this episode included many legends so something big was expected. The first song that was released in episode 5 was by the legendary Attaullah Esakhelvi who came back in Coke Studio to sing along his son Sanwal Esakhelvi.
The song has great lyrics in which Attaullah and his son tell the filthy tale of loneliness that is found in this materialistic world. Ataullah’s deep and unique folk tale voice depicts the pain of looking at all the illusion around us. The song is composed by Shuja Haider who combines soft but energetic voice of Sanwal’s with his father. The song was originally composed by Attaullah Esakhelvi himself but Shuja Haider has also done a very good job.
