noori wishes everyone an introspective Day of Independence with their latest single - ‘Kedaar’!

It’s 14th of August. The day we became Pakistani!

While we celebrate in jubilation and enjoy being free the ‘Pakistani Way’, let us also take time out and do some introspection; about our past - both distant and recent. Let us examine where we have gone right and where we went wrong. Let us look into the future and pursue a better direction. Let us reinvent ourselves to become more responsible citizens of this country!

The final episode of Coke Studio is all about unity, about coming together and creating a better future. Every artist has contributed in their own way to give a message to their fellow citizens.

For noori the expression has been in the form of ‘Kedaar’ - their latest single. Kedaar literally translates to ‘being invincible’. It represents our ability, as a society, to survive through the harshest of circumstances. It celebrates this very strength of any Pakistani citizen, and asks for our folk not to be bogged down by the destruction we have been witnessing around ourselves. It motivates us to reinvent and rejuvenate ourselves, never looking back with regret and apathy. And most of all, it asks us to move forward with dignity and strength!

This is noori’s Independence Day message to the nation.

This is about celebrating the rebirth of the Pakistani Phoenix!!!

Really loved this one. I am huge, huge fan.

Devdutt says:

Noori and Team !,

It’s nice to see you embrace elements of Classical Music (its the music of the subcontinent and is not Indian or Pakistani to be honest, and I also understand that classical music runs in your family) into your new offering. Kedar (which epitomizes the strength and power of Shiva) is a wonderful and deep Raga and you guys have chosen it well for the occasion. I wish Pakistan a very happy Independence Day !. I wish you would have included a longer passage on Sitar, given its classical roots.

Sana says:
