Coke Studio season 14, episode two was released recently, and they come back with the bangers which include so many tuneful songs and among them, the top of the list is “Kana Yaari” and “Pasoori” has been winning hearts of the nation.
Following the success of “Mehram”, Coke Studio has released KANA YAARI, the second single from Season 14, which features Eva B, Kaifi Khalil, and Abdul Wahab Bugti. Wahab Bugti playing his tambura, Kaifi Khalil, and Eva B rapping in Balochi are featured in the song, which combines traditional and modern elements.
Here you can check out the song:
The Balochi song, which is a combination of hip hop and traditional music, is about friendship betrayal and heartache. “Even though it’s a Balochi song, it’s pop, and we want it to be played in cars,” associate music producer Arsalan Hassan stated in a “behind the scenes” video of the song’s creation. It should be playing in the background while you’re sitting. This music makes us want to dance. It’s a good fusion of three different styles, with Eva B’s magnetic rap, Khalil’s modern pop, and Bugti’s authentic Balochi spirit.
Not language, but music unites: Fans can’t get enough of the Balochi song ‘Kana Yaari’
“You don’t get it, but you’re vibing”, the fact that the audience does not understand the language but they can’t resist them from enjoying the song.
The Balochi pop song, unsurprisingly, drew a lot of favourable reaction and applause from the audience. While the fans have been loving the second track of Coke Studio 14, they have been missing the usual translations of the songs – something CS has been playing with since its first season. However, fans still cannot stop raving about the catchy beat of the song and the brilliant composition. The subtitles, however, are now uploaded on YouTube.
One of the netizens wrote, “This season of Coke Studio is on fire and so is Eva Baloch Fire also a huge shout out to whoever worked on the idea of sliding the walls away and bringing all the artists in one space at the end of the video. Take all my money!”

It is great to see Balochi music being highlighted and given a platform to grow. Now we move forward to the desi banger song called “Pasoori” released by Coke Studio in the same episode.
‘Pasoori,’ which debuted on YouTube on February 7, is the sixth song from Coke Studio’s 14th season. It was written by Sethi and Fazal Abbas, with Zulfiqar J Khan, also known as Xulfi, collaborating on the composition with Abdullah Siddiqui.
Sethi wrote ‘Pasoori’ at a time when local performers were prohibited from working beyond the border, according to Coke Studio. The song’s lyrics were “motivated by the impulse to celebrate artistic self-expression” and turn angst into creativity. One of the lines was inspired by a remark Sethi observed on the back of a truck.
From the reggaeton-inspired beat to the sound of the classical instrument rubab, ‘Pasoori’ is a combination of cultural influences. The song is “a pioneering new hybrid genre,” according to Siddiqui, and “one of the most current singles of the season.”
Hashim Ali constructed the set for the music video with the goal of creating a social space where artists may celebrate humanity “not just via heritage, but also through difference in emotion, style, and spirituality.”
Netizens are raving about what they’re hearing from Sethi and Gill in the new song.
“Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, couldn’t have asked for better!” tweeted one user.
Ali Sethi X Shae Gill, couldn’t have asked for better! <33

A user spoke about their reaction to the song, writing, “Pasoori has blown my mind! The music, the vocals, the moods that the melody goes through, the journey in the lyrics.” Another mentioned, “Pasoori is one of those songs that grows on you. On the first listen I was like, ‘Hmmm okay, this is alright.’ Five hours later, I am obsessed.”
