◆ ABOUT THE TABLA & LEHRA ◆
The Tabla is a percussion instrument widely used in Indian Classical music both as a solo instrument and as an accompaniment to vocal or instrumental music. 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.
See the iLehra website for a YouTube demo:

Ratings and Reviews
Good but needs resolution Upgrade 2020
Good but please upgrade to allow new iPhone 11 with Notch full screen compatibility.
Still the best, after all these years
This app has kept me engaged and honest during riyaz for the longest time. I used to use a lehera box. Now it’s in my phone. I know it hasn’t been updated in a long time, but it still works great on my phone. I love the harmonioum and santoor sounds.
Been using this app for last 3-4 years for tabla riyaz and never ever thought of buying an actual metronome device. Portable and easy to use. Best app hands down.
I also have the iTablaPro which is equally great!!
