KARACHI: Many musical projects have tried to capture the original sounds of the different regions of Pakistan but ended up offering cheap imitations or distorted versions of what they think the original sounds are. Coke Studio’s latest venture Coke Studio Explorer perhaps comes slightly closer to presenting an actual auditory image of Pakistan, as it embraces diversity and brings local talent to a big platform.
But while that may not be an unexplored territory, a new project called Sound Diaries attempts to do the same in a better and more unique manner. Karim Barolia, a self-proclaimed environmental musician who has been working in the audio production for several years, and Aamish Hussain, an accountant by profession and an avid traveller, collaborated to initiate Sound Diaries.
