The Rough Guide To The Music Of Pakistan

Various

RGNET1116CD

The music traditions of Pakistan are rich and varied. While qawwali, the ancient Sufi song style popularized by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, has overtaken almost every other kind of Pakistani music in terms of popularity and exportability, there are a great many other significant styles. The country is justifiably proud of its many outstanding ghazal singers, with film and pop music also playing key roles in modern Pakistani music. This album explores all these styles to provide a striking insight into the deep-rooted music of Pakistan.
