This lesson starts off the series of rhythmic phrases that serve as transitioning phrases, known as mukhrās. Mukhrā 1 is a special type of mukhrā known as a tihāi. A tihāi consists of a rhythmic phrase (pala) played three times consecutively. The bedam tihāi (lit. tihāi without a breath) has the palas played back to back without any rests, whereas the damdār tihāis (lit. tihāis full of breath) have the palas separated by a rest of equal time. This lesson introduces a very common and well known bedam tihāi we see in kirtans.
