FEDERICO ALBANESE is a composer born in Milan, Italy in 1982, and currently based in Berlin. His musical versatility is a natural gift that pushes him to explore music in all its facets. Albanese's compositions are airy and cinematic, blending classical music, electronics and psychedelia. Federico started studying piano and clarinet as a child before becoming fascinated by rock music. As a teenager he studied bass and became a self-taught guitarist and soon became one of the leading figures of Milan's underground scene, performing in several bands. Influenced by black music, folk, electronic, modern and contemporary classical music his skills as a composer soon emerged. In February 2014, Federico Albanese released his debut album entitled "THE HOUSEBOAT AND THE MOON" . He recorded all of the piano parts with a 1969 German tape recorder, the Uher Royal Deluxe, which allowed him to catch all of the tiny hidden shades, the imperfections, the noises of the piano and its surrounding space. Federico melted this rarefied sound with electronics, live recordings, strings, and homemade instruments. The result was a combination of contrasts and colors with a variety of atmospheres that wonderfully represented Federico's musical universe

Man Kunto Maula, Javed Bashir & Ali Azmat, Episode 2, Coke Studio 9 Music Directed by Jaffer Zaidi Produced by Strings In a signature Coke Studio format, the platform has called on the talents of Ali Azmat and Javed Bashir to collaborate and take things to the next level on ‘Man Kunto Maula’. The enigmatic sound is made possible with words of Ali Azmat’s part penned by Sabir Zafir, coming together effortlessly with the kalaam of Hazrat Ameer Khusro. Ali Azmat takes the lead on the verses in his familiar pop-rock vocals, and as the song progresses the heartfelt voice of Javed Bashir grips one ever so tightly. The duos vocals work seamlessly together, as the house band graces the track with their precise and decisive contribution, and the humnawa provide repeating hook for the chorus – truly embracing the very essence of the Qawwali and capturing the soul of everyone that comes within its aural range. #CokeStudio9

Raag Bhairavi (Hindi: भैरबी) (Urdu: بھیرویں) is a Hindustani Classical heptatonic (Sampurna) Raag of Bhairavi Thaat. Traditionally it is a morning raga. In modern times, at least in Khyal Gayaki, it is usually performed as the concluding (finale) piece in concerts. It is the defining raga of its own Thaat. Carnatic music has a Bhairavi raga which is quite different from the Hindustani raga. Hanumatodi in Carnatic music has the same scale as the Bhairavi in Hindustani music.
