Dana pa dana - Coke studio season 4

Coke studio, being the most popular show in Pakistan, I would like to give my thoughts on their new very well-received Dana pa dana featuring Akhtar Chanal and Komal Rizvi.
I personally wanted to see more of Akhtar Chanal however the whole thing seemed like a promotion for Komal. Being a student of music and particularly learning classical music, I just felt that for devotional songs like Laal meri they should've chosen a vocalist who is quite well-trained classically. Komal just wasn't a fit nominee for the song. Nevertheless, I loved the arrangement and the whole re-do of the song with that special feel that coke studio is known for.
