The first episode of the show is on air now. It has featured Natasha Baig with Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammad Qawwal and brothers, performing ‘Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa’.
This distinctive version explores the variety of rock and the signature sound of qawwali in one of a kind track which is purely amazing.
Natasha Baig starts off the 13-minute track, performing ‘Shikwa’ to a pop-rock riff and we can’t refuse that her vocals are potent. Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammad Qawwal then take over ‘Jawab-e-Shikwa’ with their signature Qawwal style giving the original Coke Studio touch. The track was composed by their father, belatedly Munshi Razi Uddin.
With this track opening season 11 of Coke Studio and knowing the list further on, we’re thrilled to see what the rest of the season has lined up for us.
