They say music feeds the soul.
And sometimes I realize that this is true to a certain level.
For the last few days I have been listening to Coke Studio.
Now for the ones who have no idea what Coke Studio is?
Coke Studio is basically a Pakistani Musical television series.
It features studio performances of various stars from all around Pakistan.
The said music stars are established while some are emerging and a few even debut themselves.
It was first launched in 2008 and this year is airing its last and final season, Season 10.
Which we are pretty sad about.
Coke Studio aims to combine any type of music that is listened in Pakistan as well as all around the world.
They feature Traditional, Classical, Folk, Sufi, Ghazals as well Qawwalis.
Yet they do not stop there as you can even hear Hip hop, Rock and Pop music released by them.
It also features songs in different regional languages and promotes multiculturalism present in Pakistan.
