Putting together a variety of lyrical expressions, Coke Studio sets out to create a track that can be classified as a modern form of qawali with a gradual build up to a crescendo end.
Qawali traditionally borrows from various influences and verses. Aslam in this Season has merged Faiz Ahmed Faiz's critically acclaimed Rabba Sacheya with Khuwaja Ghulam Farid's universal love for God in Meda Ishq Vi Toon bringing together an interesting contrast.
Rabba Sacheya is an example of Faiz's expression of sorrow and anger for the suffering of humanity. It is a strong comment on religion and socialism where the writer is speaking to God, demanding better rights and more equality for all people.
The poem is a reflection of the shift in Faiz's work from romance to realism - seen through his use of imagery - as he started using poetry as a tool for social comment and spreading awareness towards collective suffering.
Musical treatment of the track flows with this form. Originally he had performed Rabba Sacheya from his album Meri Kahani in 2008.
