The Sachal Ensemble: Songs of Lahore


A Pakistani jazz ensemble—whose journey has taken them from obsolescence to international acclaim—play iconic jazz standards and Pakistani folk songs.  Faced with persecution after the institution of Sharia Law in Pakistan in the 1970s, a devoted group of Lahori musicians convened secretly to rehearse and record. Fueled by a love of American jazz, the ensemble merged Eastern and Western music, crafting a sound that transcends war and oppression.  Their journey, as told in a documentary by the same name,  has led them to international stages, including Jazz at Lincoln Center. They perform cross-cultural recreations of classics by Duke Ellington, The Beatles, Dave Brubeck and Henry Mancini, as well as traditional Pakistani folk songs.
