Ah! the cacophony they call ‘Coke Studio @ MTV‘ (India)! Now don’t get me wrong — I have utmost respect for the artists they invite — it’s the ‘too many cooks’ I have issues with. Somehow they end-up spoiling all the broths — no matter how promising the outcome looks initially.
I confess, however, my bars have been raised several notches, OK many more than several notches, because of what they churn out at Coke Studio (Pakistan), where Rohail Hyatt is doing an incredible job! Somehow, he knows exactly where to provide his inputs and where to just let the things be. Each of their composition is classic, unique and impeccable. I still regret getting to know about it much later — in their third season.
