Google music
India | labs

Search for artists, albums or songs.

Explore Music
Listen to thousands of full songs from our partners in.com, saavn and saregama. Currently only Hindi songs are available.

Though the default search suggested in the box is [Latest Hindi Songs], I did a search for...

ustad ali akbar khan ... [google.co.in...]

...clicked on the first play button, at the top of the page, for "Raga Zilla Kafi Alap,Gats Ustad Ali A...", and I just listened to a magnificent Indian classical raga performed by the one of the great sarod players, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. About 20 minutes long.

It's a promising beginning for a music site, with a beautifully clean interface, the way Google web search used to look. My guess is that rights issues are more complicated in the US, so Google decided to launch this in India first.

(Not sure whether this should be in Business or in Labs, but since they identify it on the search page as a Lab project, I'm putting it here.)

That is one more feather in google's cap.
