This video is a supplement to the sixth episode of The Music Room: When East Meets West, in which David Murphy explore Tihai, a technique in Indian Classical Music. Tihai literally means “3 times” and a tihai is a “rhythmic cadence” meaning that it is a rhythmic pattern repeated three times.
This is part of a short online film series exploring dialogues between classical Indian and Western music in the lead up to Ravi Shankar’s only opera Sukanya supported by the Bagri Foundation. In this supplement, tabla player Raj Kumar Misra and mridangamist M Balachandar demonstrate Tihai.
