The Sachal Studios Orchestra, Pakistan’s rough equivalent of the Buena Vista Social Club, had a hit with their arrangement of Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five”, and most of this album tries to repeat the same trick, placing Western standards by everyone from Stevie Wonder to Lennon/McCartney in a Lahore studio with sitar and dhalaks and tabla.
More interesting are the homegrown “Monsson” and “Five Rivers”.
