Meesha Shafi Signs Another Hollywood Film ‘The Tournament of Shadows’

September 9, 2012

By Ahmad Uzair

Just when you thought that Meesha Shafi is going to get a break from her filming career and we won’t be hearing from her any time soon, she hits back with yet another project which is although in its very initial phases, but would definitely bag her another Hollywood flick which many in Pakistan can only dream of.

Earlier we have reported about her being cast in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag which is an up-coming Bollywood movie starring Farhan Akhar and Sonam Kapoor. She is also a part of much awaited ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, an adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s novel.

Why Artists Should Really Care About Their Social Media Presences

September 18, 2010

By Hani Arif

After going about on the web for years and keeping it as a primary source of news for Pakistani music it’s easy to say that there is a huge gap between the connection that should be between fans and Pakistani artists. The lack of proper web content, i.e interviews, professional recordings of concert performances lack totally. It is easy to find content for artists like Atif Aslam and come to think of it, only Atif Aslam.

Online video posting should be of a good quality as to establish the artist properly and popularize them in a manner they deserve. An example of mass publicizing is that when a certain Kumar Sanu is more popular than say an artist like Usman Shani and Kumar can’t even sing like Usman. There are two sides that need to be looked at, one being the artists and the other being the listening public.

Pact of Artists:

Pakistani artists, need to come up with official representations for themselves. Pages on Facebook, handles on twitter, YouTube channels, and yes all of them need to be official, official, official. Read More

Coke Studio S03E01 – Reason (Episode Review)

June 7, 2010

By Atif Azhar Meer

Coke Studio Season 3 Episode 1 Reason

In the summer of 08 , we got one of the most finest TV productions from COKE. The first season of Coke Studio was a great success both among the masses and the critics. It was a great production, very esthetically designed artwork : the set and the lights, a great house band featuring very fine musicians and above all, a great producer, Mr. Rohail Hyatt at his best. Since then, Coke studio has come a long way. In summer 09, the second season of Coke Studio was launched. It was even better in almost all aspects. One thing I will like to mention here, that we should all feel very proud of the fact that we have achieved something very big in the form of Coke Studio. Recording Live music is not an easy task. It’s a lot of hard work.

Today, on the 6th of June, 2010, the first episode of Coke Studio’s yet another glorious return was aired on TV.  Yes, welcome to Coke Studio – Season III.

Lyrics of Coke Studio Season 3 – Episode 1 ‘Reason’

Karavan – Yaadein [ Download AudioVideo ]

Karavan are pioneering rockers and in their stint here can be described as the classic rockers of Pakistan. Making their first appearance here, they sing ‘Yaadein’, a pop-rock number. The song is about memories and how they fade, and is played out by the original band along with Omran Shafique, Jaffer Ali Zaidi and Javed Iqbal from the house band. It’s mature rock music at its best: the slow tempo, melody, acoustic sound, along with its conciseness add to its appeal.

Koi naa kahay
Koi bhi na sunay
Dil ki baat yeh
Dil mein hee rahay
Yaadein naa rahain
Chaahoon aisa mein toh
Naa yaad ho mujh ko mera maazi
