Tihai is a term in Indian music which describes the playing of a rhythmic phrase three times in order to mark a significant change in the music. This makes it a perfect fit for the title of our third album.
The production of this album was made possible with the support of our friends and family that contributed to our successful Kickstarter campaign.
