Academy Award winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s documentary, “Song of Lahore”, is gearing up for a star-studded opening in the US. According to a press release, the documentary’s New York and LA premieres will be hosted by Meryl Streep. Song of Lahore is set to release in the US this November with premieres in New York City on the 3rd of November, in San Francisco on the 6th and West Hollywood in Los Angeles on the 9th. The documentary is based on the acclaimed Sachal Studios and their journey to New York, made in collaboration with Andy Schocken. It focuses on the music community of Lahore, which until the late 1970s, was world-renowned for its music and talent. In 2004, Izzat Majeed founded Sachal Studios to create a space for traditional music in a nation that had rejected its musical roots. After convincing a number of master musicians to pick up their instruments again, they quietly released some classical and folk albums, but an experimental album fusing jazz and South Asian instruments brought Sachal Studios worldwide acclaim. Many thanks to Frank and Marci for the heads-up.
