The Lahara instrument is modelled on the sound of a harmonium. It constantly repeats a selected simple melody (Lahara) which is stored on the Instrument and is thus ideally suited as an aid for practising, especially for tabla players and Kathak dancers in order to stay within each cycle of different Talas. You can choose between 147 Laharas in total (constantly repeated melodies) in 25 different talas. You can also program your own Lahara.
The basic note is being held as a drone parallel to the Lahara and can be selected from a range of more than an octave in semitone steps. Volume of drone and Lahara are separately adjustable. The tempo is adjustable in beats per minute from vilambit to drut. All options can be selected by keys. A display constantly indicates the Matra number of the resounding note in the Tala. Both, operation by power supply and by battery are possible. The Sunadamala can be connected to the Taalmala Digi 60s (electronic tabla see above) by a synchronous LINE-IN-connection of the same manufacturer. Rhythm (Taala) and the programmed basic melodies of the Sunadamala can then be controlled via the Lahara device (Sunadamala).
