Song of Lahore examines the lives and the cultural heritage of Pakistan’s classical musicians – where do they fit into a society troubled by so much social and religious upheaval? After playing and recording in obscurity for years, an innovative album leads Sachal Studios and the Sachal Jazz Ensemble to international acclaim, and a triumphant concert with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

Academy Award winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken’s feature length documentary follows the musicians’ journey, pondering the distance and the dialogue between Eastern and Western musicians along the way, and asking if the Sachal Jazz Ensemble will ever find an audience at home.
