Following the opening of Season 6 with the release of ‘Jogi‘, Coke Studio releases its next single “Laili Jaan” by Zeb & Haniya.

‘Laili Jaan’ is a song that first took the world of Afghan Pop by storm in the 1970’s, by a man who is considered the King of Afghan music – Ahmad Zahir. While Afghanistan is known for its wealth of heritage music, Zahir contributed towards creating a legacy of Pop and Rock music that mirrored Elvis Presley, which led him to be regarded as the ‘Elvis of Afghanistan’. The song talks about classic heartbreak; a song that represents the tragedy of love lost with a comical tinge.

Coke Studio Season 6 - Artists

Finally after many ifs and buts, and a considerable amount of delay from its usual time slot, Coke Studio Season 6 once again returns with a promise to hit back even harder.

Last year there were even rumours that Coke Studio might not be happening at all but it was only 2 weeks ago when it got confirmed as the ‘press conference-cum-launch event’ for the season 6 was announced through invites to media fraternity.
