Coke studio episode 1 ideas shared By Atif aslam and Qayaas

Atif aslam and Uzair Jaswal
written by Madeeha syed:

Charkha Nolakha by Atif Aslam and Qayaas: At Qayaas band member Sarmad Ghafoor’s suggestion, who is also the guitarist for Atif Aslam’s backing band, Atif and Qayaas decided to collaborate. Atif’s intent was to help out some of the newer talent emerging in Pakistan’s music industry.

According to Atif, "We initially wanted to perform Sun Charkha Di Mithi Mithi by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (NFAK) so we shared our version of the song with Rohail Hyatt.” The producer, however, felt that Charkha Nolakha (also by NFAK) would be a better option.

According to the Qayaas’ lead singer, Umair Jaswal, "Working with Atif Aslam was a fantastic experience. He is a master of improvisation and has the ability to reproduce musical pieces that sound pleasing to the ears.”

With the idea of paying tribute to some of the biggest names in Sufi and rock music, the idea of fusing NFAK’s music with Led Zeppelin came into existence. "Initially I was supposed to sing the verses of Kashmir (Led Zeppelin) at the climax of the song but the idea was changed.” Instead, Umair sang the opening lines of a kalam by Bulleh Shah on the guitar riff of Kashmir.

East meets west in Charkha Nolakha in a symphony that is both raw and haunting. It presents itself like an intimate ballad and flows like a whispered conversation between two very powerful entities coming together with a common purpose. Umair Jaswal holds his ground in Charkha Nolakha as Atif Aslam’s contemporary—his equal—while as a seasoned performer, Atif instinctively knows how to steer the mood of the song in a way that suits it best. It was a befitting end to a fantastic start to the fifth season of Coke Studio.
