Zamana Kharab Hai, Coke Studio, Season 2, Episode 506:48

Published on July 7, 2012

This is a song about the changing times. It’s a song that perfectly captures the dilemmas of life. It talks about the pressures of everyday life & the everyday questions none can escape. But it’s also about staying rooted, learning from life’s lessons and staying focused on your dreams. Zamana Kharab Hai, like life, is about never giving up.
To do justice to its depth of meaning, the song has a simple arrangement with a strong focus on the lyrical content. This song also showcases a beautiful fusion between Bhanu Pratap’s Rajasthani Sufi vocals and Dominique Cerejo’s jazz-pop vocals.
