Sasu Mangay, Naseebo Lal & Umair Jaswal, Episode 1, Coke Studio 9
Music Directed by Shiraz Uppal
Produced by Strings
The composition and the music of “Sasu Mangay” immediately carry you to the desolate deserts of Rajasthan, where the folk song originated. Maneuvering between the contrasting territory of folk and soft rock genres, the collaboration calls Naseebo Lal and Umair Jaswal’s distinctive talents to the surface. Whilst the musicians and the house band lay the foundation comprising mouth rhythms and traditional instruments to create an addictive hook line – the acoustic rhythm of the track with Naseebo’s impeccable vocal range gently merge into the western chord progression when Jaswal’s beasty vocals make an appearance, gelling seamlessly into one another.
