In this podcast, Kushal Solanki gives us a demonstration of iLehra, a Lehra Nagma Player for iOS That provides accompaniment for tabla solos.

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".

That is the coolest thing I've ever heard. The app sounds very feature-rich.

Thanks for taking the time to create this podcast. It was wonderful to hear your excellent musicianship. You've succeeded in making me regret selling my tablas.
