Music has always had a universal appeal and reach. Over the last couple of decades, rapid strides in technology has challenged traditional distribution of music and raised questions on copyright. In recent times, there have been several initiatives and platforms that help get legal music out there for listeners. If you felt that Indian classical music was missing some of this action, you can now put that thought to rest.

Twaang – a new initiative from a Bangalore company has put legal music out there for all of us who love Indian music (non-film)and also  love our mobile devices (read, phones & tablets). By simply signing up through Twaang – which now has an Android application, you can now listen to music by Sudha Raghunathan, Subha Mudgal and Balamuralikrishna on demand !

By tying up with several record labels and also artists directly, Twaang already has lined up a large library of high quality digital music spanning genres like Carnatic, Devotional, Hindustani, folk and other forms of traditional Indian music.

If you’re an Android phone user, download Twaang now.  For Apple and other devices, guess you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
