Pakistan: Girl Band

From BBC News:
"Addicted to their Bollywood movies and Pakistani pop music, many are at ease with privately imitating their idols.

But, like all other professions in the country, music remains male-dominated. For women it is another matter altogether - raised eyebrows are the least possible obstacle.

Some have broken the barrier, none more so than the late Nazia Hassan, who took the sub-continental music scene by storm with her pop music in the early 1980s.

That may account for all the hype surrounding Zeb and Haniya, Pakistan's first all-female music band."

Please continue reading the BBC article about the success of these exceptional young women.
