Tamil portal Chennai Online has launched an exclusive website for Tamil music. The website, touted as a one-stop shop for Tamil music download, was inaugurated by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi recently.
Listeners can log on to www.tamil-songs.co.in and listen to classical, devotional and film songs. “This website is like a music archive where one can find songs composed from 1920 till date,” said Rangaraj, Chief of Bureau, Chennai Online.
He further said, that more than five years of hard work had gone into collecting the exhaustive database. “The new site will options like downloading of songs in both audio and video formats as well as the lyrics. People from any part of the world can also buy CDs through the website, which would be delivered at their doorsteps. This is the most comprehensive website available. Though there are other websites offering Tamil music, they do not have exhaustive list of songs that we do,” he added.
“The cost of downloading a song is Rs 12, and those who do not have access to a computer can send the list of songs they want, we would download the songs and burn it in a CD and deliver it to them. It is a burgeoning sphere and we are on the threshold of something that is growing rapidly,” Rangaraj said.
