The Pakistani music streaming website Patari recently released a compilation album titled <em>Patari Aslis Vol. 1</em> that featured original compositions by six promising local musical acts. The artists were funded by the website, and were given free rein to do so as they pleased, "without any creative dictation." The results are interesting, and point towards the existence of local talent that needs to be nurtured and supported.
