The cat’s out of the bag, Ali Hamza and Zohaib Kazi will be producing the new season of Coke Studio.
“We are thrilled to welcome Zohaib Kazi and Ali Hamza as the new producers,” Coke Studio announced in a Facebook post.
Singer and guitarist Ali Hamza of Noori fame has already made a name for himself as a solo act in the recent editions of Coke Studio, with hits like Tinak Dhin and Paar Chanaa Dey last season which became the final season produced by the veterans Strings (Faisal and Bilal).
Kazi, who is also a singer, launched in 2017 a project Fanoos in collaboration with Pakistan’s top audio streaming platform, Patari.
Kazi and Hamza are replacing Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia of Strings who bid Pakistan’s biggest musical platform after conducting and producing 4 seasons of the illustrious programming.
Strings took on the role as producers for Coke Studio after the original production team led by former Vital Signs member Rohail Hyatt left the show in 2013 after the Initial 6 seasons of the Juggernaut.
