Description

Faced with the challenges of war and conflict, several musicians in post-9/11 Pakistan go on a quest for self-identity and start a music show designed to help reclaim the rich and vast musical heritage of the region. Bringing together unique cultural experiences and musical genres, including but not limited to Folk, Sufi, Rock, Pop and Rap, the filmmakers capture the show from its humble beginnings. The result is an experience that unifies eastern and western sounds to make music that resonated across the globe and inspired inward reflection. -Chris Metzler
