Pakistan is blessed with rich culture and beautiful landscapes which needs to be portrayed positively to the world. The idea of Sound Diaries is to show the positive image of Pakistan through its authentic Sounds by travelling and identifying hidden talent, culture and nature; and presenting it in its purest form. Sound Diaries is about story-telling through sounds. The musical documentary consists of different chapters where each chapter has a practical approach of sound theory and application, presenting unheard, talented voices blending with the nature and culture.
