If you love listening to English and Indian songs, look no further than Gaana.com.
Owned by IndiaTimes, consider Gaana.com as the Indian version of Grooveshark that hosts Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and various regional songs along with the latest in English music.
Gaana’s interface is identical to Grooveshark, and the site offers a wide array of songs ranging from the latest to the old classic hits. Here are the list of things you could do:
- Create a playlist of your favorite songs.
- Listen to Bollywood Hindi songs.
- Search songs by typing the artist name or the name of the song.
- Listen to Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and other regional movie songs.
- Even with slower internet connection, it is easier to stream songs.
- Listen to free, usually uninterrupted, radio.
To listen to songs, you don’t have to register — although it’s free. You can stream non-stop music, search for songs to create your playlist, and browse through the collection of songs by artists name.
Other than streaming music online, Gaana also has a radio just like Grooveshark. In fact, when we talk about the design of the site, Gaana is very similar to Grooveshark.
And there’s more music to please your ears — you will find new albums, old classics, ghazals, and devotional bhajans, too.
Not sure if you can legally download the songs as .MP3 file, but it’s good to have an Indian version of Grooveshark for free. Whether you are in office, school, or home, Gaana.com is a site worth bookmarking.
Dhingana is another alternative to quench your thirst for regional Indian songs. You can listen to songs online on your computer, on your iPod touch or iPhone, and explore the broader range of regional songs it offers.
