In Pakistan, semi-classical music (or in Urdu: نیم کلاسیکی موسیقی; neem klaseeki moseeqi) was derived from classical music combined with Pakistani film music and was specifically created for TV viewers. This generally refers to the music produced by Pakistan Television from 1964 (its establishment) to the late 1980s. Although, this music is still produced but it is not as frequent.

Pakistani pop music, despite starting as completely westernized music, has been heavily influenced by semi-classical by the passage of time.
