Rohail Hyatt hinted towards an unexpected and enthralling Coke Studio season 13 which he called ‘Season 2020’.
Speaking to Dawn, Hyatt said just like the year 2020, the upcoming Coke Studio season will be unexpected and exciting.
“This is season 2020, not season 13. If that doesn’t say everything, I don’t know what does!” witty Rohail shared when he was asked to share something about the 13th edition.
“It’s actually being called season 2020, it’s not part of the series. So, it’s not going to be like the previous ones? ‘Bilkul Bhi Nahin [Not at all]’,” he added.
Hyatt said this year’s Coke Studio will feature all originals and just 12 artists will perform following the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Four will be making a debut in the mainstream, four experimental artists, four established as this year’s season is based on a small scale. Everything is live. But it is real. That’s the soul of CS. It can’t be lip synced,” he said.
Adding on, the music producer said there will be no regional content this time around as artists had to record their part at homes. “This time there are no regional artists at all. There are no regional languages either. You’ll find all urban artists only,” he concluded.
It must be noted here that the 13th season is expected to release by the end of this month. The star-studded line-up includes Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sanam Marvi, Meesha Shafi, Ali Noor, Bohemia, Aizaz, Mehdi Maloof, Umair Jaswal, Wajeeha Naqvi, Zara Madni, Saher Gul Khan, Nawazish, Ali Pervaiz Mehdi, Fariha Pervaiz, Shehroze Hussain
