You might know the Pakistan-based Sachal Jazz Orchestra from their famous video of Dave Brubeck’s Take Five that received over 800K views on YouTube. This summer, Sachal took it one step further, in a new collaboration with Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
“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 concert took place at the Barbican, in London — we’re hoping they take this collaboration to other countries around the world, too! Read more about their collaboration here.
