‘ Tal­ent Ga­lore’

India Today - - MAIL -

I strongly re­fute the ob­ser­va­tion of the writer in the re­port “If Mu­sic Be The Food Of Life” pub­lished on April 30, who be­lieves that Pak­istan has not pro­duced a sin­gle new mu­si­cal star since 2004. Noth­ing can be fur­ther from the truth. The mu­sic in­dus­try in Pak­istan has seen un­prece­dented growth in the last decade. The pop­u­lar­ity of our folk singers and artists in In­dia is a man­i­fes­ta­tion of this. Over two dozen mu­sic chan­nels like Play TV. MTV Pak­istan, Aag TV, ARY Mu­sic, Oxy­gen, In­dus Mu­sic, etc, were launched only in the last six years. Fur­ther, open­ing up of more than 100 FM ra­dio chan­nels in re­gional lan­guages has helped pro­mote mu­sic and hunt lo­cal tal­ent in the coun­try.
