Coke Studio is back with its 9th season and its first song is out. This first song, not only includes the artists that will be sharing their voices throughout this season but have given tribute to those patriots who have given their lives for Pakistan without having any second thought. The title of this song is “Aye Rahe Haq Ke Shaheedo” which is quite self explanatory. This song was originally sung by Madam Noor Jahan for the brave warriors who fought with everything during the 1965 war and came out victorious showing not only to the enemy but the whole world that even if we were out-numbered by our enemy, strong will and firm belief can even shake the mountains. And this is what our brave and courageous heroes did in 1965 war.
This song, that is sung by multiple artists which includes slain Sufi singer Amjad Sabri, Abida Pareveen, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Noori, Faakhir, Ali Azmat, as well as Sanam Marvi, Qurat-ul-Ain Baloch, Meesha Shafi, Zeb Bangash, Umair Jaswal and Zahoor is again a tribute for all those who have been fighting the war against terrorism in Pakistan. And also for those who became victim to this terrorism.
A lot of changed since 1947, our independence day, but the patriotic spirit is still as it was 69 years ago. That is what keeps us united besides much differences. And that is what keeping this country ALIVE.
