Waris Road Boogie

Sachal Studios in Lahore is home to a group of traditional musicians and singers brought together by a benefactor named Izzat Majeed to form the Sachal Studios Orchestra and its offshoot, the Sachal Jazz Ensemble. Reinterpreting classical and folk melodies, sometimes with jazz influences, the group has shot to international acclaim, topping Western charts and performing to sold out venues in New York, London, and Paris.

 

 

Uma speaks to Izzat Majeed and Noor Fatima - the founder and CEO of Sachal Studios respectively - about their incredible work reclaiming and preserving Lahore’s rich musical heritage.
