ShareChat announced a global licensing deal with Saregama, one of India’s largest music labels today that would allow its users to create amazing new content and add to their social experience on the ShareChat and Moj platforms.
Commenting on the partnership, Vikram Mehra, Managing Director of Saregama India, said
“It’s great to partner with ShareChat for both their apps. Saregama has a very large library of Hindi and regional music which is just apt for a platform like this where users are so innovatively creating content using music.”
As part of this deal, Saregama will license its large catalogue to both platforms allowing for the large community of ShareChat and Moj members to create their own short video content using the Saregama library. The robust music library offers thousands of songs in diverse Indian languages like Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Gujarati, and Bhojpuri amongst many others.
Saregama holds catalogue spanning across genres like film/non- film songs, devotional music, ghazals & Indi Pop in more than 18 languages.
“Music is an integral part of Moj and as we build India’s youngest short video platform, we are incredibly excited to partner with Saregama to allow our community of users to create fresh new content alongside their favourite retro music from Saregama,” said Berges Y Malu, Director, Sharechat.
With this partnership, users would be able to use songs from legends likes Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Gulzar, Jagjit Singh, R.D Burman, Kalyanji Anandji, Geeta Dutt and Laxmikant Pyarelal, etc. making their experience on the platform more engaging and fun.
Over 180 million active users across ShareChat and Moj would now be able to explore the Saregama music library.
