About 'Song of Lahore'

'Song of Lahore' is a documentary by Andy Schocken and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. The film tells the story of a group of musicians called the Sachal Ensemble trying to survive in the oppression and brutality of modern day Pakistan. The film illustrates how their music-making not only brought inspiration to their lives, but literally sustained them in their struggles – and how, finally, they were discovered on YouTube by Wynton Marsalis and brought to the US for performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

The companion album by the same name features collaborations between the Sachal Ensemble and a plethora of guest artists including Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Sean Lennon, Wynton Marsalis, Nels Cline of Wilco, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, Madeleine Peyroux, Cibo Matto, Becca Stevens and iconic actress Meryl Streep.
