The National Anthem rendition by Coke Studio left many fans (including us) mournful but not for long. The finest of our music industry is back with a bang!
Coke Studio 10’s first episode featured 4 songs by ace artists but it was the heart-melting Sufi rendition titled Allahu Akbar that stole the show. The beautiful composition by Shuja Haider in the voice of this dynamic duo has left many speechless.
Allahu Akbar is a musical masterpiece which blends Middle-Eastern and South Asian musical motifs in a confluence of devotion. Ahmed Jehanzeb’s ethereal voice interwoven with Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan’s commanding murqiyaan & harkatein light up the soundscapes that Shuja Haider has carefully crafted.
The song instantly sets the mood for a musical proclamation that is captivating and ethereal.
Cascading through the complex structure of the song, Jehanzeb and Khan create a larger-than-life atmosphere with their vocal prowess finally reaches a crescendo of spirituality and virtuosity.
