Silk Screen Film Festival presents: Song of Lahore

23 Sep 2016


Lahore used to be a mecca of Pakistani culture, a thriving center of art, music and poetry. When the Islamic government took over, strict rules were imposed that made art a punishable sin. The Sachel Studio Jazz Ensemble help show a side of Pakistan rarely seen by Western audiences: a lively, colorful place, with cultural heart. When the group’s rendition of "Take Five" achieved viral status on YouTube, they are invited to play in New York City with jazz legend Wynton Marsalis.
