The release of the song ‘Ekla Cholo’, in many ways, is a significant milestone for the Coke Studio brand. After a successful version showcasing some of the greatest artists from Pakistan, its latest Bangla edition is again setting new precedents to how music makers in its region are being featured, admired, and distributed to the world in this era.

Ekla Cholo, no matter how dilettante you are to the world of music or even the Bangla culture, seemed to have the power that drives prominence from within. Its rich melody reverberates a sense of calm mysticism, at the same time, expresses assuringly a path to garner unity. This sense of togetherness is something we may increasingly underappreciate and take for granted.

As the chorus gathers fortitude, its interpretation is neither indignant nor somber, but in fact, fully faithful to a course worthwhile following. High in hope, Ekla Cholo chirps an effervescent tone of heroism no matter what the future holds. A time to also remain true to oneself and put into action what we all believe towards love for great music.
