Coke Studio season 11 kicks off with Allama Iqbal's poetry.

The first episode of the show is out and it features Natasha Baig with Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammad Qawwal and brothers, performing 'Shikwa/Jawab-e-Shikwa'.

According to Coke Studio, this "unique rendition explores the genre of rock and the signature sound of qawwali in [a] one of a kind track."

Natasha Baig starts off the 13-minute track, performing 'Shikwa' to a pop-rock riff and we can't deny that her vocals are powerful. Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammad Qawwal then take over 'Jawab-e-Shikwa' with their signature Qawwal style giving the Coke Studio touch. The track was composed by their father, the late Munshi Razi Uddin.

With this track opening season 11 of Coke Studio and knowing the roster ahead, we're excited to see what the rest of the season has in store for us.
