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.■
