Music on Film: Showcasing inspiring music docs from around the world and special guest speakers selected by The Royal Conservatory of Music.
Once a beacon of musical culture in Pakistan, Lahore was a city that brought together the best in artists and musicians. Now divided by social and religious upheaval, it is a place tragically disconnected from its musical roots. In 2004, Izzat Majeed founded Sachal Studios to create a new space for traditional music. An experimental album fusing jazz and South Asian instruments all of a sudden garners international acclaim and Wynton Marsalis invites the group to perform at the Lincoln Center in New York. Song of Lahore is a testament to the human ability to create under oppression. http://ow.ly/Spcl30es31N
