This years’ Coke Studio voyage will witness a fusion of Eastern, Western and regionally inspired music for which the platform has come to be renowned. However, this season goes deeper in its journey, exploring the international heritage of popular local music genres, tracing these global influences that have left an indelible impact on Pakistan’s national and cultural musical identity. To that end, Coke Studio’s cross-genre Pakistani musical talent will be joined by international musicians trained in both contemporary and traditional instrumentation.
Hosted by media personality Anoushey Ashraf, the press conference was opened by a musical rendition of the National Anthem followed by a minute of silence in remembrance of the Peshawer bombing and Balochistan earthquake victims. A video recapturing the essence and influence of the past 5 seasons of Coke Studio was screened thereafter, following which the host invited Rizwan U. Khan, General Manager of Coca-Cola Pakistan and John Seward, General Manager of Coca-Cola Beverages Pakistan Limited (CCBPL) onto the stage.
In this evolutionary step, Season 6 will incorporate global music influences spanning from Fes, Morocco, to the Balkans, the Ottoman, and Kathmandu, Nepal.
Coke Studio Season 6 will also feature guest musicians from Italy, Morocco, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, Serbia and Turkey. So stay with us for more about coke studio season 6.
