Amjad Sabri’s untimely and tragic death has left the world heartbroken and in shock. The legendary qawwal was attacked and gunned down in broad daylight by unknown gunmen. After facing several injuries, he was pronounced dead, leaving a nation full of mourners. But only weeks before this incident, Sabri had prepared for his fans what has now become his parting gift and the much-anticipated Coke Studio debut.
The late Amjad Sabri will be seen lending his vocals to the famous qawwali Aj Rang Hai along with another renowned qawwal and playback singer Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This Kalam has been previously been performed by Hadiqa Kiani in Coke Studios fifth season in 2012.

Speaking about the recording , Amjad had earlier stated, “About 40 years ago, my father and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan read this kalaam at a dargah in Karachi and 40 years later, Rahat and I are reading it again on Coke Studio Season 9.”
“The void left by Amjad Sabri will never be filled and it is a tragedy beyond belief. In spite of his great success nationally and internationally, he was a most gentle and humble person, treasured and respected by everyone who met him. Our association with him through Coke Studio will forever live in our hearts. May he rest in peace and may his family have the strength to bear this heartbreaking bereavement of their loved one.”, expressed team Coke Studio.
