Arts Commons Presents:
Viral YouTube Sensation, The Sachal Ensemble, comes to Calgary

CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents BD&P World Music is proud to bring the virtuoso musicians of The Sachal Ensemble to Arts Commons on November 7, 2017 at 7:30pm in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.

With millions of hits on their YouTube cover of Take Five, and the story of their rise up against oppression featured in an award-winning documentary, The Sachal Ensemble quickly gained international fame, garnering them an invitation by Wynton Marsalis to play with Jazz at Lincoln Centre for an exclusive engagement. 

Performing on traditional instruments in a powerful and uniquely beautiful cross-cultural style, The Sachal Ensemble reimagines songs by Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, and even The Beatles, while also sharing their culture through traditional Pakistani folk songs. 

Watch The Sachal Ensemble’s ground-breaking rendition of Take Five that took the world by storm.
