iShala is an Indian music software that combines a tabla machine, a lehra player and an electronic tanpura/swarmandal. It provides rhythmic and melodic accompaniment for music practice or just to jam along virtual musicians.

Featured instruments are Tabla, Harmonium, Swarmandal and Tanpura. You can select to play one or all of them, and they will automatically synchronize together.
