Livegaan.com

Introduction

The livegaan team is collectiong all the rare audio archive of the history and culture of Bangladesh and make them accessible worldwide through the site, with a vision to spread Bangla Language, Bangla Culture, Bangladesh to ourselves and to the world.

For the last few years we have been collecting all types of Bangla songs, Music, audio archives, Kobita and many more with an aim to

  • Create a website (www.livegaan.com) for spreading Bangla gaan, Bangla culture all over the world
  • Promote listening music online, instead of download.
  • Build up the biggest Archive of Bangla Audio.
  • Accumulate rare collections of our local musics (Folk songs, Classical songs, Regional songs such as Sylheti Gaan, Puthi pat, Pala gaan, Gombhira, Pahari gaan, etc) with the help of the users. We follow the same method used by youtube, but concentrated on Bangla Songs and Archives only.
  • Create a platform for the new artists to show their work to the people.

Having these visions in mind, we started the work, and launched the site for testing on 3rd December. The response we got was very encouraging and tempted us to launch the site officially on 16th December by uploading some rare collection of Chorom potro, 1971 and some rare Regional songs later. We started with 16000+ songs on 16 December; plan to reach 21000+ on 21 February and 26000+ on 26th March…… so on.

Copyright issue

To deal with the music copyright issue, we have considered the followings:

1. We will not be providing or encouraging any commercial activities through our site using the contents.

2. The content of our site will be uploaded by the users following the same policy as followed by youtube. The contents will be solely uploaded by users and users only.

3. We will only promote listening music online and not download. If someone likes to own any song, he or she should buy it from the market.
