Music Portal

Konkani and Tulu music industry which has a rich history was somewhere lagging behind when the realm of music went Cloud. RADIO daijiworld bridges that digital gap. About 80% of its broadcast content will be dedicated to Konkani and Tulu music.

Apart from expanding the platform for Konkani and Tulu songs, RADIO daijiworld opens to its listeners, a world of vernacular music across generations.

"Earlier, everyone knew that P B Srinivas sang Mog Tuzo Kitlo Ashelo, and Wilfy Rebimbus provided the lyrics. But these days, one may know the song but not the artiste. Here, with the radio, recognition is given to artistes across time," said Arun D'Almeida, the station director of RADIO daijiworld.

Producers and independent artistes can send their songs or albums to radio@daijiworld.com for broadcasting.


The app is available for free download in Google PlayStore and Apple store (search for RADIO daijiworld).

    Congratulations, Daijiworld, for another bold step and positive step in the right direction. The online Radio link will be a great benefit to the public that will enable people to voice their opinion on the air as instantaneously as possible. This is certainly a new and colorful feather on Daijiworld's bonnet.

    We wish Daijiworld best of success in all your creative plans to keep in close contact with the people and the places in your daily efforts to keep abreast with the daily events. This is certainly a bold step yet a cautious step because now you are able to record your voices on so many daily affairs that pertain to our daily life.

    Involvement with the media is a delicate job that needs be handled with caution and precision. In a country such as India we have been blessed with lavish freedom of press and freedom of expression, yet every media needs cautiousness because media is a fragile field of application, and we want Daijiworld to succeed in all their contributions that will help our community as well as our society in a wide and wild world of publicity and interaction that involves people in our daily life. Best of luck and God bless.
