It seems like a while ago, when we lost one of nations biggest stars! Amjad Sabri’s demise was an inconsolable loss! Until Coke studio announced his performance in their latest season! Never was a series awaited with a collective breath of the entire nation!

Now that It’s finally here, for a while, it’s seems like our very own Qawwal of the nation is back from the heavens to sing praises of his beloved Lord and prophet!!

Sabri Sahab collaborated with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan for this kalaam and it is SENSATIONAL! We got tears and goose bumps just after a minute of listening to it! What’s more? This soulful and melodramatic kalaam was earlier performed by the epic maestros Ghulam Farid Sabri and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan almost 4 decades ago!! The shrines ricocheted with the otherworldly kalaam, Rang, of Amir Khusro.

This was performed in a beautifully entrancing manner where the song started with Rahat’s vocals and a momentary key change introduced the music to our ears; Amjad Sabri’s raspy and soulful voice! The song brought together the past and present in a wonderful cascade of vocals in a classic traditional essence!

Way to go Coke Studio, not only do they know how to make an enrance they also exit with a BANG!
