Clinton takes the word 'Madari' literally & builds this playful track around the Madari himself. The song goes on to insinuate that the turn of destiny in a man's life also happens thanks to the Madari's all-knowing damru. With a strong percussive arrangement, this song talks about how no situation in life is in our control and we can only play along with the almighty, i.e. the Madari.
One of the most interesting collaborations to ever come up on Coke Studio @ MTV, is this crazy mix-up of two completely different worlds -- Bhanvari Devi's traditional, powerhouse Rajasthani vocals, fuses with Hard Kaur's scorching rap on her personal life journey displaying her genuine rapping skills. The end product is a burst of energy, unlike anything you've heard before. Two outlaws from two different universes come together in this Ram Sampath song to celebrate freedom, rebellion & belonging.
Celebrating fearlessness and a bold, carefree attitude, this song brings together two very powerful voices - Jyoti Nooran from the popular Nooran sister duo and Harshdeep Kaur. Their act together makes for a very interesting jugalbandi.
This composition by Sachin-Jigar is a song written about broken hearts. The lyrics for the song, written by Mayur Puri, speaks of the angst and rebellion in a lover’s chaotic mind. Pouring the right emotion into this track, are vocalists Jasmine Sandlas and Divya Kumar. For the music on this track, Sachin-Jigar attempt crossing various genres and styles, from angsty rock to dubstep, with a good amount of dhol thrown in.
Hitesh had heard Piyush Mishra sing this song 15 years back and it has stuck with him ever since. Written and composed by Piyush, this song is a letter from Javed who was separated from his lover Husna during the partition. In spite of having left everything behind and eventually moving on, there is a looming sense of helplessness and grief in the song. Musically Hitesh has tried to recreate that era through interesting acoustic guitar arrangements blended with Indian percussions. In keeping with the upheaval experienced by the lovers, Hitesh also ends the song on a tumultuous high.
Giving a whole new spin to the term 'world music' -- A.R.Rahman spins his magic on an absolute scorcher, featuring Jordanian singer --Farah Siraj along with Nepalese Buddhist Nun Ani Choying. With the traditional Nepalese Buddhist hymn forming the base of the song, layered with a traditional Jordanian melody, and bridged seamlessly with composition written by A.R.Rahman, this song truly brings together diverse cultures and musical genres. Everything from the background vocals to Sivamani's percussion takes a big leap across musical styles and creates a storm of inspired rhythms, to give this track that extra flavour.
A popular Sufi love song where the poet talks about how loving one's beloved is as sacred as worshipping the Almighty.
The word Laadki is a fond way of addressing a daughter. In this brand new composition by Sachin-Jigar, they capture a beautiful conversation between a Father and his daughter. It is the celebration of their unique bond and the journey of a girl growing up to be a woman. The parts of the little girl are sung by Sachin’s daughter Tanishka Sanghvi; while Rekha Bharadwaj has sung the parts of the woman, adding an extended level of charm with her melodic voice. Lending a beautiful touch of Gujarati Folk is Kirtidan Gadhvi, who delivers a sublime vocal performance that transcends the mood of the track.
Amit Trivedi has a knack for discovering melodies where there are none. This track sees him turn the danceable rhythm section into a melodic masterpiece, using the immense talent of Tanvi Shah. Tanvi has a uniquely mellow and melodic voice, which fits right into this composition and adds a fun new flavor to it.
This composition by Amit Trivedi on Coke Studio@MTV Season 3 is fun! That seems to be the best way to describe it, thanks to the magic Shalmali Kholgade and Karthik bring to the table. Written by the very-talented Kausar Munir, this is one melody that's not about to leave your head anytime soon!
