Amjad Sabri Sahab's Last Performance Ever Closed Coke Studio 9 And We're Shaken

By Malaika Tahir | 23 Sep, 2016

The song the entire nation was eagerly waiting for has finally been unveiled tonight by Coke Studio 9 in its Season Finale.


This episode held enormous sentimental value for South Asia and had been a subject of major anticipation ever since Amjad Sabri parted the world following a heart-rending and tragic death, leaving the nation in a state of grief and shock.

Watching Amjab Sabri deliver the very last of his performances alongside Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in Rang is painful, beautiful and emotional, all at the same time.

As much as it’s heartbreaking to know that Rang is Amjad Sabri’s last recorded kalaam before his untimely death, we know that this song is a legacy he left behind that will be listened to, sung and remembered among generations forever.


Watching Amjad Sabri perform his very last masterpiece is an emotional moment for Pakistan as a whole

As the realization of how big of a loss we endured on 22nd June 2016 became fresh , the wound anew – everyone who’s been listening to the song has been shaken.


As Ghulam Farid Sabri’s son, and a member of the Sabri Brothers, Sabri came from a family of tradition and began learning qawwali music from his father at an early age of 9. He had his first on-stage performance at the age of 12 and eventually, his talent, passion and hard-work made him globally acclaimed as he presented the work of his family and traveled widely to India, America and Europe where he was known as the “rock star” of qawwali. 

Amjad Sabri had a unique way of presenting the work of his father and uncle, attracting even the younger generation to qawwalis.


Tajdar-E-Haram‘, ‘Mera Koyi Nahi Teray Siwa’ and ‘Bhar Do Jholi‘ are some of the works by the renowned Sabri family that Amjad Sabri gave a touch of his own and won the hearts of many.


The realization is truly saddening that this would be the last time we will ever see Amjad Sabri perform, but we also know that legends never die, therefore Amjad Sabri will live among us forever.


Every eye is teary, every heart is broken and yet everyone can’t stop listening to the legend’s final performance

This is all we can think of at this moment:
