Alif is in Kolkata now working on her new DVD "I Am A River". The theme is based on the moods of the river and its relation to the emotion and stages of our life. She portrays each stage with Bernhard Ullrich on saxophone and Tanmoy Bose on tabla with intertwining Indian classical ragas and Western Jazz. The film will be directed by the very creative film maker, Sanjeev Chakravarti of Miami University and Gautam Bose of Kolkata, India. Alif is very excited about K J Singh (A R Rahmans sound engineer) doing the mixing in the audio recording. Through the music she imagines she is a river and tells the story of an artist's life.

Amazingly everything came together that evening against all the odds and we had a great concert with a warm reception from the hosts and receptive audience. All of us kept our positive energy high all through the day that helped create a magical evening of 'music in the storm'!
