Season 7 Artists

Abrar Ul Haq

This Season of Coke Studio will witness the return of Bhangra legend Abrar-ul-Haq, who makes his return to the platform for a second time. Abrar made his Coke Studio debut last year and is excited to perform again at Coke Studio in Season 7. Abrar-ul-Haq is a household name in the Pakistani music industry and has long regaled Pakistani music fans with hit songs such as ‘Billo de Ghar’, ‘Rung Rung’ and ‘Preeto’.

Starting his journey from Narowal, Punjab, Abrar was a student of Social Sciences before later becoming a teacher at the prestigious Aitchison College in Lahore. However, his passion for music was a part of identity which always co-existed alongside his career in education, a passion which he took main stream in 1995 with his first album ‘Billo de Ghar’. With mass popularity through 5 more albums, Abrar-ul-Haq remains one of Pakistan’s most prolific artists particularly in the genre of Punjabi music. Abrar is also an avid philanthropist and humanitarian – he is the founder of SAHARA for Life Trust and the Sughra Shafi Medical Complex in Narowal. He aims to encourage the promotion of health and education in the country’s most remote areas.

Abrar’s music can also be heard in the soundtracks of renowned motion pictures. His song ‘Paani da Bulbula’ was a part of the OST of the feature film ‘Zinda Bhaag’ which also featured tracks from other leading musical talent. This Season Abrar is looking forward to injecting his signature Bhangra energy into Coke Studio 7.
