Produced & Directed by Strings
Music Directed by Sajjad Ali
Lyrics by Sudharshan Faakir

Musical mastermind, Sajjad Ali makes a stunning debut on Coke Studio as a music director with his poignant rendition of Ronay Na Diya. The reproachful lament relays the overwhelming emotions of remorse and despair with musical inlays of a sorrowful clarinet and wistful vocals. Sajjad Ali’s classic, celebrated vocals find an interesting match as Zaw Ali brings a wild concoction of vibrant r&b vocal runs alongside her delicate but powerful classical chops. A gorgeous manifestation of grief, the song pays homage to the exquisite, Malika-e-Ghazal, Begum Akthar.
