Ahmed Jahanzeb & Umair Jaswal – Khaki Banda (Coke Studio 9 Episode 3 – Video/Audio/Lyrics)
‘Khaki Banda’ is a sufi-rock track without limiting itself within the boundaries or sticking to one musical genre, sound or style. Beautifully crafted lyrics penned by music director and composer, Shuja Haider – the duet featuring Ahmed Jehanzeb and Umair Jaswal captivates you from start to finish as a result of its carefully intricate instrumentation. Starting with the strumming of the guitar laying the foundation of the main riff of the track, the song builds on an atmosphere leading to the interval played impeccably on the violin by the string section, giving this track a definitive amount of energy and spirit from the onset. Jehanzeb’s melodic, dynamic singing style combined with Jaswal’s aggressive, energized vocals serve as the perfect accompaniment against the unstoppable groove, a flickering drumbeat and timely interludes of this magnum opus.
