A group of formerly oppressed musicians from Lahore, Pakistan got an opportunity to perform in NYC. This is a huge deal for them. This documentary chronicles the challenges they faced as they prepared for and embarked on this journey to world stage. Worth a look for sure.

Arguably as good as Buena Vista Social Club. Muslim Jazz as championed by Wynton Marsalis. A must for fans of Brubeck's Take 5. Give this a try! The opening sitar chord, then a flute duet when the bamboo flute proved to be better than the metallic one.
