Jazz at Lincoln Center will present a special concert in New York City called Music from Pakistan featuring Sachal Jazz Ensemble & Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) and Wynton Marsalis on November 22-23, 2013.
The Sachal Jazz Ensemble is a group of virtuosic master musicians from Pakistan who incorporate Eastern instruments such as sitar, sarod, tabla, and dholak into new interpretations of jazz standards that are enlightened by their own rich musical tradition.
In this pioneering collaboration, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the Sachal Jazz Ensemble will perform new arrangements, blending the sonorities of modern and ancient instruments and using the jazz form to integrate American values of blues and swing with sophisticated and highly-evolved Eastern music traditions.
Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is filming the extraordinary Sachal Jazz Ensemble for a documentary to be released in 2014, which will conclude with this highly anticipated JLCO collaboration. This project furthers JALC’s commitment to cross-cultural understanding.
Watch the Wynton Marsalis Quintet and the Sachal Jazz Ensemble videos of “Limbo Jazz” and “Rythmesque.”
