Sachal Ensemble at the Spa Little Theater

The Sachal Ensemble musicians -- known for their extraordinary journey from Lahore to Lincoln Center featured in the Song of Lahore film -- will bring their soulful music-making and the story of how they saved a piece of their culture despite Pakistan’s tumultuous political climate, to Saratoga audiences for a one-of-a-kind performance. 

The 10-piece group, touring the United States for the first time, combines conventional instruments with traditional Pakistani ones for South Asian spins on Western classics.

When their video interpretation of Brubeck’s Paul Desmond classic "Take Five" went viral, the musicians became international sensations and were invited to collaborate with trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

Come experience live what jazz legend Dave Brubeck called "the most interesting and different recording of 'Take Five' that I've ever heard” at SPAC’s Spa Little Theatre on Monday, October 30.

Tickets for the performance start at $40.
