Reviewed 2016-08-08 
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.
***1. Fusion of South Asian sounds esp percussion featuring Wynton Marsalis, Works, 4.08
** 2. Earthy/powerful vocals by Susan Tedeschi with a South Asian music bed. Play it. 3:56
***3. A lil bit of soul, a lil bit of funk & some tabla/flute etc. 3:58
**4. Michale Jackson's Man in The Mirror remixed w tabla/sitar. Kinda works 4.23
**5. Meryl Streep recites an evocative poem. 4.41
6. Sean Lennon channels a lil bit of his dad in this track. 4.24
***7. An old African-American spiritual re-imagined with tabla/sitar. SUnd in English & Urdu. Slow. Poignant. 6:06
***8. This Bob Marley track with a South Asian flavor comes as a pleasant surprise. Vocals by Cibo Matto & music by Sachal Ensemble. 3.56
*** 9. A short & wonderful version of a track forever associated with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. 2.57
***10. A Stevie Wonder calssic remixed w Hindustani music. Charming. 3.44
11. A slow/mellow traditional track. 4.33
***12.Wonderful track with vocals by La Marisonl of La Santa Cecilia. They are a LA-based band.
**13. A George Harrison song remixed by Brazilian singer Seu Jorge.
