Song of Lahore – A Documentary Film Screening (Free Admission)

The amazing roots of the Sachal Ensemble are uncovered in this extraordinary documentary film. As political tension, ethnic division, war, and corruption tore apart the cultural fabric of Pakistan, the town of Lahore — once a haven for musicians and other artists — ceased as a cultural mecca. That is, until the establishment of Sachal Studios in 2004 as a place where traditional musicians could create again, if at great personal risk. How musicians from this rebel recording studio came to play jazz with Wynton Marsalis at Lincoln Center is the stuff of legend — and lends to some thrilling filmmaking. See the Sachal Ensemble perform live on Nov. 18! Visit
