The Sanskrit word tīrtha (THEER-tha) literally means a ford, or a shallow place in a river that can be easily crossed over. Within a spiritual context, tirtha denotes a holy place near a body of water - somewhere where everyday struggles fall away, and where one passes easily into a deeper and more profound state of being. Aptly, Tirtha is now also the name of a phenomenal trio featuring three powerhouse musicians who at once honor and traverse the streams of tradition. It is also the name of their exciting new album on ACT. Individually, Indian-American pianist-composer Vijay Iyer, Chennai (formerly Madras)-born guitarist-composer Prasanna, and Hyderabad native and tabla player Nitin Mitta are already highly accomplished artists who shift easily among multiple musical languages.

A slightly bizarre pairing of two regarded musicians, in the form of pianist turned electronic composer "Robert Miles", and celebrated percussionist "Trilok Gurtu". Here they are collaborating on a joint effort that encompasses everything from creative Jazz, to melodic electronic breakbeat. The dynamics behind this are relatively simple: Miles provides the musician soundspaces, keyboards, melodies, breaks and string arrangments, and Gurtu provides his quite staggeringly array of tabla, snare, drums, clay pot & percussive beats either, over the top or subtly texturing the sound with compelling rhythms. (with the help of various artists such as `Nitin Sawhney' on guitar & `Adrian Bradbury' on cello).
