MUMBAI: Now, generations of Indian music lovers across the world can enjoy free, unlimited streaming music and safe, licensed downloads in over 40 Indian languages. The recently launched MP3 website, www.manoramic.com, brings together licensed music from over 200 major Indian music publishers onto a convenient one-stop-shop platform. This coming together of India's top music labels on one website, claims a company announcement,á makes Manoramic.com's catalogue the largest in the world, with close to 330,000 songs in 45 languages and 200 genres ÔÇô from the latest Bollywood chartbusters and Remixes to Spiritual, Instrumental and Classical favorites.

Spanning 200 genres, the catalogue caters to several generations of Indian music fans at once across every kind of taste ÔÇô be it Bhajans or Bhangra, Shlokas or Sufi, Ghazals or Gurbani, the latest filmi hits or nostalgic evergreens from the 40s or 50s, and more. Classical and Carnatic music are comprehensively covered with M S Subbulakshmi, Ilayaraja, Pandit Jasraj and others. The young music fan has a wide variety to choose from too, starting with DJ Aqeel's remixes, Bhangra Pop, A R Rahman and the latest film hits. Music lovers will also find rare audio gems including historic speeches by Jawaharlal Nehru, poems by Tagore and Amin Sayani's Geetmala collections.

To encourage fans to discover new music that suits their individual taste, the site's unique music search engine finds comprehensive results based on sixá different categories: Song, Album, Film, Actor, Music Director and Lyricist. As soon as one enters just three alphabets, Manoramic.com's search technology throws up relevant suggestions from all the six categories. In a nutshell, a single click gives a range of music you can explore that was created by the same artist ÔÇô whether as a lyricist, music director or even as an actor.

Until now, Indian music fans have had to settle for sites offering a limited range of music and that too from ÔÇ?download only', or ÔÇ?stream only' services. Even the few licensed Indian music download services available online today offer a limited range of labels and languages. Most are DRM-encrypted, which prevents purchased music from being played on other devices.

Manoramic.com, created by Mallers Inc, offers Indian music fans an exciting new alternative - a safe and secure music portal where they can listen to unlimited music for free, browse new music and download songs in a trusted, high quality environment.

Says Sameer Nigam, CEO, Mallers, Inc., As an NRI living in Los Angeles, I was surprised at the lack of legal options available to me whenever I wanted to listen to or download my favorite Indian songs. I was usually forced to search across multiple sites to find the songs that I wanted. And most were illegal sites and torrents that introduced harmful viruses and spyware to my computer.

So, in early 2009 we approached the Indian music industry to partner with us and create a one-stop-shop for Indian music lovers globally. We're thrilled to report that today most major Indian labels have joined the Manoramic.com mission, and Indian music fans can now rediscover Indian music again in a safe and legal way....

Every MP3 Song on Manoramic.com is encoded at a minimum of 128kbps to ensure a high quality listening experience, and every download is DRM free to allow easy portability onto any device. While Manoramic.com's free streaming music is available everywhere, Downloads are available in USD payment plans for NRIs and INR payment plans for the domestic Indian market.
