Islamabad - Kuch Khaas Art Gallery would organise a classical music night in the federal capital on August 29. The singers Sajawal Khan, Robin Khan and Sohail Khan would perform in the classical music event. The classical music of the country is based on the traditional music of South Asia which was patronized by various empires that ruled the region and gave birth to several genres of classic music.

The classical music has two main principles, `sur’ (musical note) and

`lai’ (rhythm). The systematic organisation of musical notes into a scale is known as a raag. The arrangement of rhythm (lai) in a cycle is known as taal. Improvisation plays a major role during a performance.
