Sachal Jazz Ensemble perform with the Strings of the London Symphony Orchestra on 8 November 2014.

In this ground-breaking 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.

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 informed by their own rich musical tradition. The group has proven to be a viral sensation with nearly 700k views of their interpretations of Dave Brubeck’s 'Take Five' and REM’s 'Everybody Hurts' on YouTube.

This project furthers JLCO's commitment to cross-cultural understanding.
