Coke Studio is back! The tenth season of the hit Pakistani television series Coke Studio began on August 11, 2017 coinciding with Pakistan’s Independence Day celebrations.
After 9 very successful seasons and dozens of hit songs, the 10th season is off to a flying start. The legendary Strings band is producing and directing the show for the 3rd consecutive year.
At the launching ceremony of Season 10, after the screening of the National Anthem the host of the event, Hira Tareen invited Strings band members Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia on to the stage to say something about Season 10.
Bilal Maqsood stated “The process of recording songs in Coke Studio is done in three phases. Most of the songs you see of Coke Studio are recorded in one take. In the first phase, the teams decide what kind of music should be featured. The second phase is all about the jamming room and the last phase comes when the artist appears and brings his/ her own vibe to it. By bringing together some of the biggest names in Pakistan’s music industry to sing our revered National Anthem, we hope to rekindle the spirit of patriotism and social consciousness in the heart of every Pakistani. This is more significant now than ever, as we are marking seventy years of our independence.”
The first episode of Season 10 was aired on August 11.
