Categorized as: Performing Arts & Dance
Event tags:

Description:

How did an esteemed group of Pakistani musicians — living under the influence of the Taliban — come to America to play the music of Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington and The Beatles? Invited in 2014 to collaborate with Wynton Marsalis, their intense but ultimately jubilant experience was captured in Song of Lahore, an award-winning documentary. The Ensemble is now touring America. “God willing, this will help the entire world see that Pakistanis are artists, not terrorists” (Sachal Ensemble’s Nijaat Ali).
