Sean Lennon and the Sachal Ensemble reimagine the 1974 song made famous by Elvis Costello “(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding”. The song comes from the upcoming release 'Song of Lahore', a companion to the documentary of the same name by Andy Schocken and Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. The documentary tells the story of a group of musicians called the Sachal Ensemble struggling to survive in the oppression and brutality of modern day Pakistan.
'Song of Lahore' features collaborations between the Sachal Ensemble and a plethora of guest artists including Jim James, Sean Lennon, Wynton Marsalis, Nels Cline of Wilco, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bill Laurance of Snarky Puppy, Becca Stevens, with spoken word by Meryl Streep.
