Iconic Abida Parveen graces the Coke Studio platform this season. Parveen is well-known for her Sufi works and at Coke Studio she brings some never-before heard combination of Sufi kaafis and doahs.
Unlike the rest of her repertoire, ‘Ramooz-e-Ishq’ is in Urdu (also popularly titled ‘Mein Hun Mashhoor’), and dwells on the love man has for his Creator.
The piece has been composed in such a way so that the emphasis remains on the Sufi message. So even as the entire Eastern-Western house band plays music — violin, bass, drums, keyboard et al — the sounds being produced are very subtle during her renditions. The focus is entirely on the singing and giving Parveen space to express herself.
