iShala is an Android/iPhone/iPad app that can be used as a tabla machine, a lehra player and/or an electronic tanpura. These are small machines that provide rhythmic/melodic accompaniment to people practicing Indian music, or just jamming on any other musical style. Featured instruments are Tabla, Harmonium and Tanpura. You can select to play one or all of them, and they will automatically synchronize together (apart from Tanpura that is meant to follow its own cycle).
