Song of Lahore - The Sachal Ensemble is a wonderul collection of old & new songs re-imagined and re-interpreted by Pakistan's The Sachal Ensemble. The singers range from Cibo Matto to La Mirasoul and Seu Jorge. What makes this album different is the inclusion of South Asian musical sounds in each track.

All the tracks work in this album.
