Picking up where 2014's Searching For Sound film with Harlem Shake hitmaker Baauer leff off is a new three-part series of the same name in which three experimental musicians hone in on the sounds of places that inspire them. In episode one, MIYTA travels across central Russia, while Bomba Estereo's Simón Mejía revisits the Afro-Colombian community of San Basilio de Palenque.

The third and final instalment sees Mumbai producer and electronica artist Sanaya Ardeshir – better-known as Sandunes – exploring the sounds of her home city, recording (and recycling) the sounds her fellow city-dwellers take for granted.

"Mumbai is the sort of the city that's super overwhelming," she says in the film as she explores fruit markets, temples, street festivals and more, before collaborating with promising female musicians. "Through the chaos I have to try to find the sound of the city and the music within it."
