Twaang goes the music on your phone
The Hindu, 25 Jan 13
In the classical range, Twaang is upswing with Shubha Mudgal, Sudha Ragunathan, Ganesh/Kumaresh, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Jayanthi Kumaresh, Mysore Manjunath and Nagaraj, Malladi Brothers, Pravin Godkhindi and much more. “It serves as a launch/promotion pad for new artists/bands, helping them promote their music.
As veena artiste Jayanthi Kumaresh observed: “Gone are the days when one clung to one’s albums. We must realise that in this tech-savvy age, the more people listen to our work, the more satisfaction we derive. Just like Spotify in the U.K., if classical music is available as an android app, what more can musicians ask for?”

An application that allows you to listen to Indian music, on the move
You’re walking in London’s Hyde Park when you’re seized by the memory of a Carnatic number you listened to as a child. It’s not stored on your iPod, but you want to hear it immediately. All you need to do is Twaang.
…The app can do everything your music player does, but it provides access to a larger library. It focusses on Carnatic and Hindustani music and Indian fusion. It has a good collection of Tamil and Malayalam film songs too, but the USP remains desi, non-film music.
