"Song Of Lahore" is the latest feature-length documentary from Oscar-winning documentarian Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Set in Lahore, Pakistan and New York City, the story follows the members of Pakistan's Sachal Ensemble, a group of master musicians who find international recognition after decades of being forced underground by dictators and religious extremists. Universal Music Classics was enlisted to create not a "soundtrack" to the movie in the traditional sense. Rather, what will be available as a standalone music piece is a companion album to the film, called Sounds Of Lahore. In effect, the album is an "East Meets West" concept project. These songs originate from Pakistan, India, the United States and Jamaica; and all of them are centered on the theme of universal love and hope. The way in which through music, we find the light within the darkness. The album is produced by Grammy-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, Willie Nelson, Robert Glasper, Elvis Costello).
