Pakistan’s classical virtuosos the Sachal Jazz Ensemble emerged in 2011 with an ambitious recording covering Western jazz standards on traditional instruments. Their unusual angle on Paul Desmond’s “Take Five” went viral, earning them worldwide recognition and an invitation from Wynton Marsalis to perform at Lincoln Center. In this cross-cultural, genre-bending concert, works by Mancini, Brubeck, and Grusin blend with Pakistani traditions on sitar, flute, sarangi, and tablas, capturing music as the universal language, a bridge across divides and between cultures.
