Coke studio took the start of its 11th season in 2018, 11th August. Every episode went on-air on the internet on Fridays and Saturday was scheduled for television broadcast. Like every year, there’s a list of best songs 2018 from Coke Studio.
Just before we go into these top songs of Coke Studio, let’s recall where it all started from; the music industry was good but not so good, before Rohail Hayat came out with the very first season of ‘Coke Studio’ and then, there was no turning back.
Coke Studio by far has been the ‘most watched music show’ of Pakistan television. A number of new artists have been introduced by Coke Studio over the course of ten years. The show took a start with music producer Rohail who left the show in the seventh season, and then the Pakistani iconic pop band Strings took over the show with a full swing.
With new talents such Momina Mustehsan, Bilal Khan, Haroon Shahid, Aima Baig, Jaswal Brothers, and not to forget Asim Azhar let’s take a look at the list of top coke studio season 11 songs:
Us Rah Par
Shoaib Mansoor wrote and its originally sung by Junaid Jamshed. Sung by Ali Hamza, Ali Zafar and Strings and music composition by Jaffer Zaidi, the song is beautiful. The song is definitely not just the best of coke studio season 11 but is also the one of the top songs of coke studio 2018.
Kyun Na Chunain Wo Rasta
Jis Par Nahi Koi Gaya…
Allah U Akbar
The first Hamd of this season, sung by Ahmed jahanzeb and Sahfqat Amanat Ali, beautifully written by Shuja Haider and Salman Azmi, and music by Shuja Haider. The hamd is so beautifully sung that it will give you goose bumps. If you need a treat, then this Hamd is a must!
Nooh ki kashti ko dekhta hoon
Hoz e Nidamat main dooba hua hoon
An amazing traditional folk song beautifully composed by Sahir Ali Bagga and sung by Aima Baig and Bagga. AIma made a debut in coke studio with this song and did a great justice to the song. The song forces you to dance on its beautiful music. Sahir Ali Bagga,s powerful vocals and Aima’s grip on Siraiki even she doesn’t know it made this song a treat to listen.
Sat Bismillah Kar k Dhola Main hunn Ishq Qaza Nai Karna…
Ronay Na Diya
A song originally sung by Begum Akhtar and now by Sajjad Ali and his daughter Zaw Ali alongside, and he himself has composed the song. The song marked the debut performance of Zaw and she absolutely nailed it. The duo of father and daughter was absolutely love!!! The song has beautiful lyrics and is beautifully composed. Zaw also covered the English part pretty well.
You are the only one and I am the lonely one……
Sab Maya Hai
The song is originally composed and sung by Ataullah Khan Esakhelwi. This version was sung by Ataullah himself along with his son Sanwal Esakhelwi and composed by Shuja Haider. Shuja Haider has really created magical music. Sanwal’s debut was great. I absolutely loved his voice. Ataullah Khan was as always perfect.
Kaatay Na Katay
The song is written by Saifuddin Saif and Ali Hamza wrote additional lyrics. Originally composed by the legendary Nisar Bazmi and sung by Roona laila. The song is sung by Aima Baig, Rachel Viccaji & Humaira Arshad. The song starts with rock vocals of Aima and Rachel and then Humair sungs the classical part like a nightingale. I really loveddddd Humaira’s performance. The heroic entry of Ali Hamza was also good.
Dekh Tera Kya/ Lathay di Chadar
The song is a fusion of two songs. Dekh Tera Kya originally written by Muhammad Nasir and sung by Alamgir, while Lathay Di Chadar was written by Bashir Manzar and sung by Musarrat Nazir.
The song is composed by Shani Arshad and beautifully sung by Farhan Saeed & QB. They both had a great chemistry together. The song was also great Luddi song. It is also a great addition to our Wedding Songs.
Faasle & Ghoom Taana
This song by all means deserves to be in the list of top songs of coke studio season 11.
Faasle is written and composed by Jaffer Zaidi and is presented by Kaavish along with Quratulain Baloch. And for your surprise, Jaffer is son of legendary Nayyara Noor. Coming to the song, the song is a sad song. It is a conversation between two people, one of them is in love with other but the other one is a Bewafa. QB’s powerful voice is an excellent addition to the song.
Jaa Raha Hoon Main!!!
Baanware is a beautiful composition of Shuja Haider. It’s written by Syed Raza Tirmazi, sung by Aima Baig and Shuja Haider. Shuja Haider’s magical voice and magical composition was great. Aima Baig did the rest of the magic in making it to the ‘best songs 2018’ list.
Mujh Se Pehli Si Muhabbat
A beautiful ghazal ‘Mujh Se Pehli Si Muhabbat’ written by Faiz Ahmed Faiz and originally sung by Madam Noor Jehan – is a remarkable remake by Humaira Arshad and Nabeel Shaukat Ali as singers and composition by Meekal Hassan. This is a beautiful tribute that leaves a soothing effect.
Mujh Se Pehli Si Muhabbat…
