The MJ Show #98 (Songs from the Coke Studio Sessions - Season One)

I just tweeted this yesterday:
"Holy SHIT! Every now and then, as a music lover, I chance upon something so spectacular...something so makes the jaw drop."
"Today' I've found one such thing. It's going to make you melt in your pants if you're a real music lover. Can't wait to share it with you!"

I swear to God! I'm not kidding you. This is so phenomenal...I'm having a musical orgasm of sorts!

Here's the official story:
Coke Studio embodies a musical fusion of exciting elements and diverse influences, ranging from traditional eastern, modern western and regionally inspired music. Bringing alive the magic of live recordings and performances, Coke Studio prides itself on providing a musical platform which bridges barriers, celebrates diversity, encourages unity and instils a sense of Pakistani pride. Coke Studio is an inspired step by Coca-Cola for having created a platform where renowned as well as upcoming and less mainstream musicians from various genres can collaborate musically.

With Season 1, Pakistan witnessed fusion in its natural essence and form combining not only classical eastern and contemporary western style vocals but instruments and musicians. Live collaborations were staged all summer aired every fortnight, on every television screen, simultaneously, across Pakistan.
