A part of a musical legacy that spans seven generations, Ustad Tafu Khan of the renowned and musically acclaimed “Tafu” Ghrana will be making his Coke Studio debut this Season. Born in Lahore, the musician lists Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Noor Jehan and Lata Mangeshkar as individuals who inspired him to pursue a career in music. Ustad Tafu is a musical maestro who is adept at playing almost all varieties of instruments, but will be showcasing his Tabla playing skills at the Coke Studio platform this season.
Expressing his experience of working in Coke Studio, Ustad Tafu Khan said, “I think Coke Studio has helped in discovering many talents who were not mainstream and not as valued as they should have been. Coke studio has brought such talents in the limelight by showcasing their true potential. Working with Strings was a great experience and I found the environment to be very welcoming and warm. Bilal and Faisal are like my sons and they gave me a lot of respect”.
Coke Studio welcomes Ustad Tafu Khan to the platform and looks forward to seeing him demonstrate his musical talent in the 7th Season of Coke Studio.
