About the Music Broadcasted on our Radio
TeluguVani is NOT a 100% CINI MUSIC Radio. TeluguVani broadcasts very few movie songs. In this digital age, people hardly ever come to a Radio station to listen to movie music. Besides there are ample number of sites, such as YOUTUBE and Raaga.com that promote pure music and also allow download. So in TeluguVani we are aiming to promote Telugu Culture and forgotten arts in Telugu, such as Folk songs, light music, mimicry etc.,
We run promotional cini music so that our listeners know which movies are going on. We don’t allow any download of this music. Having said all this, Owners of Teluguvani strongly believe in the rights of the Music creators. Teluguvani obtained ‘PRS License‘ in UK to Broadcast only. We also have signed MOUs with music companies. For example we have permission from “Madhura Audios”, second largest music production company in AP, to play their music on our TeluguVani Radio.
We try our best to protect the legal rights of the music creators. And Teluguvani is committed to take immediate action to remedy in case we are alerted about any copyright violations.
