Recorded in New York City over the summer of 2015, the Sachal Ensemble provided the traditional sounds of their home in Pakistan, presenting several traditional Folk and even some Pop melodies of the Southeastern subcontinent. Those songs were then transformed and woven into a larger, wider tapestry, connected to a number of well-known and recognizable classic Pop, Folk, Jazz and Blues songs from the American music canon and sung by many esteemed and successful artists from the Western hemisphere. The album features such musical luminaries as Wynton Marsalis, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Nels Cline of Wilco, Sean Lennon, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, Madeleine Peyroux and Meryl Streep reading a poem by 4-time Nobel Prize for Literature nominee, Faiz Ahmad Faiz. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello), Song of Lahore is not a soundtrack, but rather a tribute album to the film, continuing the message that through music, we find light in the darkness. The Song Of Lahore album is the sound of humanity at work. You can learn more about “Song of Lahore” at their official website and order it on Amazon or iTunes. Many thanks to Dominique for the heads-up.
