My first exposure to Pakistani/Indian music did not come from my Mian. I had known him for a few months by then - long enough to know he was really from Pakistan and not from Brunei - and my roommate was in college for musin composition. We both worked together at a Bookstore and Roommate was in the last year of a piano composition degree and forced me to attend recitatls. At the bookstore, you could special order in all sorts of wierd stuff and after we learned that Mr. Mian (not yet Mian at that time since the word mian means husband, but you get the point) was from Pakistan, Roommate ordered a CD, after looking into Pakistani music history a bit. "Pakistan's biggest music star" Roomate told me, was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. We played the CD at blarringly loud volumes in our apartment and looked strangely at each other until Roommate asked me "Do you like it?"
What do you guys say - do you like it?
