#Abida-Parveen, Arieb Azhar, #Arif-Lohar, #Meesha-Shafi, #Karavan and #Zeb-&-Haniya, are all included in the video promoting the first episode, which goes on air on June 6.While #Arieb-Azhar and Zeb and Haniya have performed at #Coke-Studio before, the real draw this season appears to be #Abida-Parveen. Fans of devotional music flock to hear #Abida-Parveen sing live, and her performances are often sold-out in Karachi. When the show was being taped, Parveen sat through hours of re-takes and minor technical mishaps with immense patience, thanking attendees at the end of the recording for listening to her.

At #Coke-Studio, she gelled extremely well with the house band, which comprises of some of the country’s best musicians including #Gumby, #Omran-Shafique and #Asad-Ahmed.

#Overload’s #Meesha-Shafi, who told The Express Tribune earlier this month that she had never imagined she would get a chance to work with #Arif-Lohar, was one of the “biggest surprises this season” for #Gumby. The drummer told The Express Tribune that while he had heard her sing before, he was very pleasantly surprised at the ‘completely different feel’ she had at #Coke-Studio.
