    The Sachal Studio Orchestra, a Pakistan-based jazz group which blends eastern and western musical styles, has been taking the US and UK charts by storm.

    The group was started by a London-based businessman in Lahore, who has put more than $2m of his own money into building a state of the art studio for the musicians to record their music in.
