Dhingana, the popular music streaming website in India has shut down its operation from 14th February, 2014. The reason behind the shut down is unknown at this point, but the shut down is expected to be due to high licensing fee set by music labels so that these streaming services couldn’t make enough money to keep the service running.
“We hope that you enjoyed listening to Dhingana as much as we enjoyed building it. But alas, all good things must come to an end. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be a part of your musical moments.” notes Dhingana Team in the official website.
Founded in 2007 by win brothers, Snehal and Swapnil Shinde, the Dhingana offered a library of over 1 million free on-demand Indian songs, in over 42 Indian languages and genres to the world. The company had also released Dhingana app for a variety of operating platform including Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows etc, but now following the shutdown, it has pulled their apps from respective stores.
