So far, the fourth season of Coke Studio has been another success. Sure, not every song nor every session can please all fans, but there have been some stellar collaborations that have been added to many iPods across the country and beyond.

But has Season 4 been the best yet?

Clearly that’s a personal choice. And even if you believe that Coke Studio has already crescendo-ed and it highs will be hard to surpass in coming seasons, Coke Studio has forever altered the musical landscape in Pakistan. As Zara Farooqui wrote for Newsline in June 2010, “Coke Studio continues its journey in reigniting our pride and passion, and showing that music can be a means of bringing people closer and bridging the gaps that divide us.”
