oke Stu­dio sea­son three unleashed after a lot of TV and bill­board adver­tis­ing on June  6th, 2010 (over the last week­end). After much media hype and two suc­cess­ful sea­sons under its belt, this sea­son also debuted with mega-stars like Abida Parveen and Arif Lohar and less famous stars like Mee­sha Shafi of Over­load fame, Zeb and Haniya, Arieb Azhar and Kar­a­van mak­ing up the lineup of episode one.

Coke StudioIt was not anti-climatic despite the hype, though; the show stop­per was not Abida Parveen sur­pris­ingly even if she’s a vet­eran and has a huge fan fol­low­ing among the young and old, (for some rea­son, I didn’t like her song selec­tion). It was Arif Lohar and Mee­sha Shafi’s Alif Allah Cham­bay di booti num­ber while the runner’s up was def­i­nitely Zeb and Haniya’s Bibi Sanam Janem.

Arif Lohar’s per­for­mance also revived younger generation’s inter­est in Alam Lohar – the mega-folk star of yes­ter­years and father of Arif Lohar. Loads of peo­ple started dig­ging up his videos of the orig­i­nal Jug­gni on Youtube and posted them on the Face­book.  All in all, Coke Stu­dio sea­son three has opened up with a bang and there are many more good­ies in store for music lovers out there.

For my part, I can hardly wait…this sea­son is sure to be inter­est­ing too…next episode will be aired on June 20th, 2010.■
