The DJ gig that became a political rally

How does a small town Pakistani DJ become known internationally? When his major gig is a political rally.

Asif Butt - better known as DJ Butt - has been providing the music to the rallies of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan for several years now.

Because of DJ Butt's non-traditional approach to political gatherings, he has become the man behind the soundtrack to Imran Khan's current anti-government sit-in in Islamabad, which is now in its second month.

Produced by BBC Urdu's Amber Rahim Shamsi.
