In the eighth instalment of the revising classics series we will revisit 3 Coke Studio performances involving the Desi Hip-Hop culture.
School Di Kitaab – Bohemia
From Coke Studio Pakistan comes a really conceptual live session with the legend Bohemia. We see the deep and the conscious lyricism of the Punjabi rapper as he rides the beat to perfection. With amazing vocal projections and deep dope lyricism this definitely is one of the best Coke Studio’s hands down. This was one of the best and the most ecstatic performance I’ve ever seen from Bohemia.

Allah Veh – Manj Musik, Raftaar & Jashan Singh
We see a deep side of Raftaar and Manj Musik with this live session. The way Jashan Singh’s vocals provide the start to this amazing session and the smooth tunes Jashan uses is commendable. Raftaar redefines the word depth with the lyricism he used in this project . With Manj Musik slaying the vocals and the projects this was one of the most energetic performances seen in Coke Studio. This session is a must hear for everyone who loves conceptual and deep lyricism in their music.

3) Kattey – Ram Sampath, Bhanvari Devi, Hard Kaur
This is one of the best fusions ever. If you were to mix two worlds into one this is the outcome you will get, a beautiful piece of art. The way Bhanvari Devi sang made me fall for her vocals, She was amazing and killed it and complemented the rock fused beat perfectly. Hard Kaur slayed her verse with dope lyricism and reality laced bars. Ram Sampath produced this beauty and deserves the props. Definitely one of the most interesting collabs to ever happen.
“celebrate freedom, rebellion & belonging”
