Atif Aslam brought the house down with 'Kinara' in the second episode of Coke Studio. This week, he takes a swing and delivers a six again.
"'Wasta e Pyar Da' is fusion but it's not random. There is a section where I improvised on the floor and came up with lyrics. It's a blend of two cultures, varied sounds and at the same time, it's a lot of fun. I wasn't trying to be intentionally Western or otherwise. Just myself," says Atif who also belts a cover of a very popular song in the middle and then lands back into 'Wasta e Pyar Da'. Its musical experimentation and new horizons for Atif and Coke Studio is a platform where he is exploring it fully.
"We were just sitting around and goofing and next thing I see Atif is singing 'Wasta e Pyar Da' and it sounded good so I suggested we do it in a bluesy kind of way. Innovations are welcome and no idea is ever a bad idea!" says Rohail Hyatt about the song, which is a brand new composition from Atif Aslam.
