After ten weeks and eight episodes, Coke Studio wraps up its 11th season with a very interesting choice of songs. Season 11, titled ‘Jashan’ aired its eighth episode featuring “Wah Jo Kalaam” by Asrar, Vishnu and Shamu Bai, “Apna Gham” by Bilal Khan and Mishal Khawaja, and “Luddi Hai Jamalo” by Ali Sethi and Humaira Arshad.
The remake of ‘Luddi Hai Jamala Pao” by Ali Sethi and Humaira Arshad is a modern, disco remix.
The classical song has been recreated by combining Punjabi folk with a disco sensibility. Backing the vocals of both singers, dholak beats ornate the song, with a twist of hip-hop and the entire arrangement is beautifully crafted. The iconic track still holds incredible charm to mesmerize the listener.
Originally the song was sung by Madam Noor Jehan.
After the release of the song, Noor Jehan’s youngest daughter, Nazia Ejaz talked about the remake of her mother’s track and reacted to the newest version of “Luddi Hai Jamalo”.
Nazia, who is a visual artist herself, said, “I am very happy that Coke Studio did this and took on the iconic Luddi Hai Jamalo. I really want my mother’s songs to be sung so that our youth gets to know them.” She further added that she is happy that this has happened and absolutely supports this venture.
She reminisced about the time when her late mother recorded the song and used to dance to it every time she heard it.
The song has been working its magic all over. People are filled to the brim with praises.
It’s great to see that Coke Studio has taken a classic and produced a rendition people actually appreciate.
