Song of LahoreDVD - 2016
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 it was an experimental album fusing jazz and South Asian instruments that brought Sachal Studios worldwide acclaim. Their rendition of Dave Brubeck's Take five became a sensation, and Wynton Marsalis invited them to New York to perform with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. After a week of rehearsals fusing the orchestras from Lahore and New York, the musicians took to the stage for a remarkable concert. Featuring musicians Baqir Abbas, Rafiq Ahmed, Asad Ali, Najaf Ali, Nijat Ali, Ballu Khan, Saleem Khan, Izzat Majeed, and Wynton Marsalis.
