It would not be wrong to say that in recent times Pakistan Music industry has seen a lot of female talent representation . However, when it comes to female percussionists there is one name which comes instantly in our mind and that is Veeru Shan, whom we noticed first time when she performed alongside Meesha Shafi in Battle of the bands and then Nescafé Basement. Seeing her in house band of Coke Studio was a moment of pure joy for us. So in continuation of our Coke Studio house band series we present you our conversation with her. Where did you grow up ?

How Faisal X Haroon Live session made us Nostalgic

Those who follow Ravesh know very well our inspirations from 80's, 90's and their role in motivating us in starting #Ravesh. Awaz and Strings being two of them for sure. So excitement for the Instagram Live session featuring Faisal Kapadia and Haroon was pretty obvious . It was much more than we expected to be honest. From singing songs of each other to Haroon showing dance flip on Faisal's request , every thing was right there any 90's could have asked for. One most notable extract from the session was Faisal insisting on a Awaz reunion and we are glad Haroon did NOT write it off. He said it would be exciting if that actually happens. Well, if that happens...

Choti Khushiyan is all we need during this Lock down !

With so many Instagram Live sessions going around , we thought to jump on the bandwagon by having conversation with our good friend, Ahmed Zawar, the lead vocalist of Band E Sharp. Apart from having usual chit chat, we were interested in knowing about the band's upcoming album since the boys were spending restless days and nights for it, but then we were hit by COVID-19 and world stopped caring about any other thing.

This was the first time Ahmed opened up about the plans the band had regarding their album . What's most interesting is the fact that they have...

The Coke Studio houseband has always been a point of attraction in the show however, this time around we got to see many new entries which made us want to know more about them.

"Meray Dost, Meray Yaar" a Musical Band Drama we needed maybe?

I grew up in Pakistani Music Band Culture of the 90s and two dramaz (in fact of one of them is a long play) Dhundlay Raastay, Talaash were surely a treat for me. Still think they were way ahead of their times and I still enjoy them thoroughly. So as soon as the news of this new web series, under the banner of Continental Biscuits, broke I got curious rather than excited as my main concern was (in fact still is) would the cast pull off originality or would they act like wannabees.  But to be honest I really liked the first episode. To start with, sound track was pretty cool, inspired from Daft Punk type music in a very...
