Coke Studio @ MTV Season 1

What is this album about?
This is the music album from the first season of the Indian edition of the Coke Studio television program format where multilingual artistes and musicians of different genres come together to create unique sounds. 

Who is it by?
The album is the coming together of some of the most popular and offbeat musicians from Indian classical, folk, film and non-film genres, like Bombay Jayashree, Rashid Khan, KK, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shankar Mahadevan, Lesle Lewis, Sabri Brothers, Harshdeep Kaur, Shafqat Amanat Ali, Raghu Dixit, Kailasa, Richa Sharma,Wadali Brothers, Khagen and Mousam Gogoi.

Why should listen to it?
Much like a minute-long trailer giving a snapshot of what a movie is about, this album made for easy listening, gives a fair idea of Indian music through its melding of bits and pieces of various genres, so one can then go on and delve deeper into the genres that one enjoys.
