LayaTarang (rhythmic waves) is an Indian music related app intended for the practice of Layakari (Polyrhythm). Layakari means the play of rhythm i.e., the simultaneous playing of two different rhythms. It is similar to the Polyrhythm in western music. With LayaTarang, learners of hindustani music ( tabla, vocal and instrumental ) and dance ( kathak) can sharpen their Layakari skills.

s The app provides an ability to play 5 basic tals in 8 different layakari and their combinations. Optional mode with tabla teka on 'barabar' and metronome in selected 'laya' is useful for kathak dance practice and Hindustani vocal or instrumental music practice. The visual hand and finger indication helps in practice of reciting 'teka' in different layakari while mainting the 'tala' with hand. The tabla bols are written in devanagiri script in the form useful to learn writing tals in the Pt. Paluskar and Pt. Bhatkhande notation systems, under different layakari.

LayaTarang is a creation of SiddhiSadhana.
