The Golden Era of “Lollywood” in Lahore, Pakistan, peaked in the 1960s and 70s, until the enforcement of Islamic Sharia law in 1977 led to a steep decline in the arts. As work dried up for studio musicians, producer Izzat Majeed secretly gathered these intrepid players at his Sachal Studios, where they recorded a hit version of Dave Brubeck’s iconic “Take Five”—with a South Asian twist. Wynton Marsalis invited the Sachal Ensemble to perform with his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, leading to an album, an acclaimed documentary (directed by Stanford alums Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken), and invitations to perform around the world. We are thrilled to welcome Sachal Ensemble to the Bing Concert Hall stage.

🎥 In conjunction with the performance, Stanford Live will be screening the documentary Song of Lahore on Wednesday, November 8. Info here:
