When played as a solo instrument, the tabla is accompanied (usually on the harmonium or sarangi) by a continuous cyclical musical phrase or riff called the "Lehra" or "Nagma" (ostinato in western music) that keeps track of the "aavartan" or rythmic cycle in the chosen "taal". ________________________________________ ◆ AND NOW PRESENTING - iLehra ◆ iLehra was the first electronic Lehra / Nagma player for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and its now available on the iPad as well! It provides accurate as well as pleasing lehra accompaniment for a wide variety of taals and raags on the Harmonium, Santoor, Violin, or the Flute. Innovative features include tanpura auto-tuned to the chosen lehra/raag, presets, tap-tempo, metronome, and extremely intuitive controls.

  • Awesome app!

    By Ommmmshanti
    I love this app. I'm always using it for my tabla practice and find it has been very beneficial. I've recommended it to several other tabla students.
  • Very good

    By valloy
    This is a very good app been using this from its inception. Glad to see this big update. It's not cheap but the sounds are spot on and to me that's worth every penny.
  • excellent app. could use better quality instruments.

    By shilpshilps
    This app is excellent! It's simple, intuitive, and makes riyaz quite enjoyable. It is worth the price! The santo or is amazing. Also the app is frequently updated. I highly recommend it. Just note that the quality of the violin and flute is pretty bad. They sound extremely synthetic and are unpleasant to listen to. I hope they improve them in the future.
  • Great App

    By Pohar
    This is a very helpful app towards any percussionist. The only thing is that more instruments should be added for the lehra like sarangi, eraj,dilruba etc
  • Great!

    By Tallisynapse
    Amazing app. Very user-friendly, good sound, LOVE the integrated tuner... And if you turn the tampura off it's also good for practicing western music. And comparatively well-priced; a similar cycle subdivider used by music educators called "dr. Beat" usually costs around $100. Thank you!
  • Good App!!!

    By Daniel Scott
    I really like this app. It's very helpful for people who play the tabla but don't have a partner to play the lehra. The reason why I gave this app 4 star and not 5 star is because the Santoor excellent and sound very realistic but the Harmonium, flute and the violin don't sound very realistic. Hope they will do something about this issue in upcoming updates... Also this App is very expensive !!!
  • Great start

    By Texsingh
    Please keep working on audio sample quality for natural sound for Tabla & Violin. Would be great to have more presets with multiple Antaras so it is less monotonous.
  • Excellent app

    By Vb Joshi
    I use it a lot for my solo tabla riyaz and tabla lessons. The app is well designed from musicians point if view. I suggest adding more ragas and various tunes in one raga for the lehara. I donot understand why the Sarangi is missing. Its the best for lehara. Overall gr8 jon.
