Alif Laila ~ Sitar "Dance With The Wind"

This is a clip from a 'work in progress' of sitar compositions in Indian classical music with world percussion,

by Alif Laila

Tabla~ Debapriya Nayak

African Udu ~ Mattias Ructh

The music is based on various raags and world melodies and moods.This composition is based on a Nazrul Geeti from Bengal 'Shukno patar nupur paye' imbibed from a Turkish song ' Üsküdara Gideriken'..The images are from Alif's water-color paintings.

This is symbolic of the unifying elements of all cultures and peoples.
