Coke Studio releases the sixth song from Season 15, Chal Chaliye, bringing the inimitable vocals of Sajjad Ali, Pakistan’s Prince of Pop, with the purity of neo-classical sensation, Farheen Raza Jaffry in an exchange that speaks to that of mentor and student.

This collaboration, a testament to producer Zulfiqar Jabbar Khan’s [Xulfi] vision, paints a vivid picture of a man (Sajjad Ali) urging a woman (Farheen Raza Jaffry) to step out of her comfort zone and embrace a life of adventure. The lyrics, “Koi tau awaz tujhe neend se jagaye gi | Toota hua khwab tera jor se dikhaye gi” (A voice will sound to pull you from your slumber | A voice that will piece the fragments of your broken dream together), are a powerful call to action.

Directed by Awais Gohar, the opening scene showcases a bustling cityscape, reminiscent of a pre-Partition era, before transitioning to a richly hued room where Sajjad Ali sits, his presence imbued with a sense of experience and wisdom.

Farheen Raza Jaffry appears vibrant and full of life, yet remains hesitant, a stark contrast to Sajjad Ali’s confident demeanor. The video masterfully depicts the internal struggle between fear and the desire for adventure.

Indeed,Chal Chaliye is a poignant exploration of hope, courage, and the choices we make. It’s a testament to Coke Studio’s enduring legacy of bringing together exceptional artists and creating music that transcends borders.
