The Perfect Sky is Torn!

I just finished editing content for our 1/2016 edition. While I was working on final copy, this song kept playing at the back of my mind like a sad refrain…I have yet to come up with the title of our cover story. However, I think this is our theme song for this edition. Its’ so sad.
The perfect sky is torn…sigh.

Divisionary

Do the right thing do the right thing
do it all the time do it all the time
make yourself right, never mind them
don’t you know you’re not the only one suffering

Coke Studio: Season 7 – Effortless, Professional and Slick

Bottom line, Season 7, episode one by Strings is an effortless, professional production that is indeed “Sound of the Nation” reinterpreting the traditional musical instruments of Sitar, Dholak, Flute – bringing together surprise collaborations from guest stars and the house band. I have no faults to find, though, the presentation is pretty low-key because it borrows from our musical roots and traditions, therefore, hardly contains any elements of surprise– very smooth job indeed.

Coke Studio: Season 6 – Same Old, Same Old, Blah, Blah…

Not that I want to rain on his parade but I think Coke Studio needs fresh new blood.

Its same old, same old; it started with the single “Jogi” and it went downhill fast from there

Things have Changed

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

2013: Happy New Year!

all that you can't leave behind

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
It’s just a moment
This time will pass

Stuck in a moment, from All That You Can’t Leave Behind, 2000, U2

Coke Studio – Season 5 Kicks off May 13th with a bang!

atif aslam

Coke Studio has finally arrived as a team (Orchestra). Technically it was a great episode – no jarring notes at all in the music collaborations – the house band, the backup vocalists and of course, Rohail Hayat all provided great musical support and back up to the vocalists – it’s now up to them (vocalists) to shine and come up with great new material.

Carl Orff – Carmina Burana – O fortuna played by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (with lyrics)

Fate, in health and in virtue, is against me driven on and weighted down, always enslaved.
So at this hour without delay pluck the vibrating string; since Fate strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!
