Coke Studio@MTV: Sona Mohapatra and Ram Sampath create a gem – Main toh piya se!

An amazing amalgamation of soulful and deep vocals, with Sona Mohapatra’s rustic texture bringing a new kind of joy to this beautiful track

After presenting some classical raag-based and Sufiana fusion songs in the recent past, Coke Studio unveils a fun number – Main toh piya se naina. We are completely bowled over by Sampath’s soothing composition and Mohapatra’s effortless singing.

Known to add her unique and original touch to every song she sings, Sona Mohapatra does exactly that with this upbeat yet complex Ram Sampath composition based on the poetry of the 13th century iconoclast Hazrat Amir Khusro. It speaks of love, freedom, devotion and abandon.

The song – Main toh piya se – fuses Hindustani tones, folk notes and Afro beats to create a hybrid world sound without electronics. For all Sona’s fans, here’s another chance to see how your favourite – ours too! – singer pours her heart and soul into this one. Watch the song and tell us if you like it!
