Episode 4 of Coke Studio 9 came out with a lot of pleasant surprises that were quite unexpected seeing how this season had been going. It started off with Mohsin Abbas Haider’s commendable debut and ended with people praising Noori’s beautiful Punjabi folk song “Paar Chanaa De” that left everyone speechless.
Noori collaborated with Shilpa Rao an Indian singer to compose this masterpiece. It is one of those few Coke Studio hits that received almost all positive reviews.
Here is what Pakistanis have to say about it.
1. The song had everything it takes to make a hit.
All the feels, brilliant lyrics and amazing composition.

Not only Ali Hamza and Ali Noor outdid themselves, Shilpa Rao deserves equal credit for making this song a hit. If you are a Punjabi this song is pure treat for your ears, if you are not there are subtitles for you. DO NOT MISS THIS OUT IN ANY CASE.
