The Middle Tempo (in Indian Music) is denoted by the Sanskrit term Madhyamā, according to the Nāṭyaśāstra.—In the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, the laya i.e., the tempo of Music is also determined according to the sentiments. According to the Nāṭyaśāstra, laya or tempo is made according to the time of kalās. Kalā arises from the collection of mātrās. The time period of one mātrā is calculated with five nimeṣas i.e., five times blinking of eyes. The Nāṭyaśāstra accepts three kinds of layas viz., speedy (=druta), middle (= madhyamā) and slow (= vilambita).
