Coke Studio Season 9 Episode 5

episode_5

Broadcast on September 10, Season 9 Episode 5 continues the high standards set by Coke Studio through the years. While most will be driven by the popularity of Rahat Fateh Ali or the sounds of “Jhalliya”, sung by Javed Bashir, Shahzad Nawaz, and Masuma Anwar, my vote goes to the continuing brilliancy of music director Noori who, this time around, has provided the riff-driven “Main Raasta”, sung by Junaid Khan and Momina Mustehsan. This potential pop-rock anthem is awash with pounding drums and blistering guitars, masterfully blending one into another. Apparently, the teamwork of the vocalists goes beyond lending their voices as the duo spent several days confined in a studio working on the melody and the lyrics. Junaid’s perfect falsetto puts the deep tonality of Momina’s vocals at the forefront of the track featuring a guitar solo against an unstoppable groove, a bouncing chorus, and a manic drumbeat, making Episode 5 as sweetened as its carbonated sponsor, Coke.
