A perfect symbiosis of jazz and traditional Pakistani music, join The Sachal Ensemble as it performs Song of Lahore. Part of Arts Commons Presents BD&P World Music, don’t miss this incredible concert.

Inspired by the acclaimed documentary film of the same name, the show includes cross-cultural music by Duke Ellington, The Beatles, Dave Brubeck, and Richard Rodgers as well as traditional Pakistani folk songs.

From the city of Lahore, a thriving mecca for the arts for over 100 years, new laws created an unwelcome atmosphere for all but religious music. Respected musicians were forced to hide their instruments, and turn away from their livelihood. Watch The Sachal Ensemble tell their story of endurance through the powerful and uniquely beautiful music of multicultural collaboration.

Catch The Sachal Ensemble: Song of Lahore at 7:30pm on November 7, 2017 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE).
