MDC Live Arts presents The Sachal Ensemble: Song of Lahore


Their story is as remarkable as their sound- click to watch their acclaimed documentary trailer. Direct from Pakistan! The Sachal Ensemble perform iconic jazz classics and Pakistani folk songs on sitar, bansuri (flute), sarangi and tablas (drums).

Hear the virtuouso musicians who risked their lives to preserve their art—and in the process, became YouTube sensations, documentary stars and international jazz ambassadors alongside Wynton Marsalis. Launched from obscurity into the spotlight, their new album features collaborations with the likes of Meryl Streep, Seu Jorge, Madeleine Peyroux & more!

Part of Ojalá/Inshallah: Wishes from the Muslim World, a season designed to explore the diversity of Muslim culture through the arts and to challenge widespread assumptions concerning contemporary Muslim identity, made possible in part by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts (DDFIA)’s Building Bridges 2016-17 Grant Program.
