"(My Morning Jacket's Jim James) joins the Sachal Ensemble for an uplifting, divine rendition of Stevie Wonder's Love's In Need Of Love Today."
- Rolling Stone

Overcoming barriers of language and culture, six core members of the Sachal Ensemble from Pakistan have created this spectacular album, joined by a plethora of guest artists including Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Sean Lennon, Wynton Marsalis, Madeleine Peyroux, Becca Stevens, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks of Tedeschi Trucks Band and Meryl Streep in a spoken word appearance. Song Of Lahore is a landmark East-meets-West collection, inspired by the acclaimed documentary film of the same name.

"... I was looking for songs that expressed the idea and ideal of universal love and hope. (Stevie Wonder's classic) was a perfect vehicle ... we transformed Stevie's iconic gospel-tinged vocal harmony introduction into an Urdu chant. This was also the first time these musicians sang harmonies on a record. Jim James then came in with his beautiful and sensitive take on the melody, completing this call to love and the best of our shared humanity."
- Eli Wolf, producer

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
