The Sunadamala lehera instrument is a sophisticated electronic musical instrument designed to enable tabla artistes and students to practise independently without the help of another musician (to provide rhythmic tune accompaniment). The 'Sunadamala' is capable of producing 200 preset tunes, set to 20 taals in different commonly used ragas. A tune, once selected, repeats itself endlessly until stopped.
In addition, the Sunadamala can be easily programmed by the user to produce any 2 tunes of one's choice, for any taal and in any raga. These tunes, once programmed, remain stored in the memory of the instrument even if the power is switched off. They can be erased by programming other tunes on the same keys.
