Semi-classical Music

In Pakistan, semi-classical music (or in Urdu: نیم کلاسیکی موسیقی; neem klaseeki moseeqi) was derived from classical music combined with Pakistani film music and was specifically created for TV viewers. This generally refers to the music produced by Pakistan Television from 1964 (its establishment) to the late 1980s. Although, this music is still produced but it is not as frequent.

Pakistani pop music, despite starting as completely westernized music, has been heavily influenced by semi-classical by the passage of time.

Famous quotes containing the word music:

    For do but note a wild and wanton herd
    Or race of youthful and unhandled colts
    Fetching mad bounds, bellowing and neighing loud,
    Which is the hot condition of their blood;
    If they but hear perchance a trumpet sound,
    Or any air of music touch their ears,
    You shall perceive them make a mutual stand,
    Their savage eyes turned to a modest gaze
    By the sweet power of music.
    William Shake{peare (1564–1616)
