With such diverse emergence, Pakistani music seems to be one of the most diverse forms of music present in the entire world. The six major languages spoken in the country (Punjabi, Pashto, Sindhi, Saraiki, Urdu and Balochi) add to the variety of melody which is found here.
Arabic, English, Indian, Persian and Portuguese music have particularly shown their mark in Pakistani music. The popularity of music has not left the United Kingdom and the Unites States untouched.
