Shilpa Rao’s beautiful Punjabi folk for Coke Studio’s 4th episode

September 5, 2016





For it’s 4th episode of this Season, Coke Studio gave its fans the chance to hear Bollywood singing sensation Shilpa Rao’s fusion rendition of Punjabi folk Paar Chanaa De, along with Noori.

The song aired on all channels on Saturday 3rd September.

With hits like Tose Naina Lagay, Khuda Jaane, Malang and Meherbaan to her credit, Shilpa Rao has also been a part of Coke Studio India.

Talking about her Coke Studio performance Rao said, “Par Chanaa De is a very beautiful song. It is literally a theatrical saga because the song has emotion, anxiousness, longing to meet your loved one and hope. It’s a folk song and the words are very hard hitting.”

A grand duet of music directors Noori, the oral folk tradition was passed on to the brother duo by their grandparents. Noori and Shilpa Rao’s vocals, independently encapsulate the listener earnestly, as the soundscape further develops with Noor Zehra’s impeccable groove on the Sagar Veena. --SAMAA
