Pakistan

All Around This World South Asia map featuring Pakistan

This week’s online class takes us to infinitely-complex South Asian nation of Pakistan, a nation whose many electrifying genres of music tell the tale of the country’s geographic location at a crossroads between South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East. This week we’ll enjoy Pakistani songs in Pashto, Farsi, Urdu and Punjabi, music that just as effortlessly sends us a thousand years into the Sufi past as it keeps us in tune with the global rock sounds of today.
