No music lover could fail to be moved by the inspiring story of The Sachal Ensemble as depicted in the documentary film Song of Lahore by two-time Academy Award-winning directors Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken. Having to disband in 1977 due to the implementation of Sharia law in Pakistan, the musicians were reunited in an underground movement that saw them become a YouTube sensation by blending their age-old tradition with American jazz. The Sachal Ensemble shows a different side of Pakistan as this is true "world music" at its finest.
