WorldSpace Launches 24/7 Indian Marathi Station

21 декабря 2006
International satellite radio provider WorldSpace added Surabhi, India's first 24-hour Marathi radio channel, to its lineup. The newest addition to the company's programming offering recognizes the Maratha culture and "pays tribute to one of the richest languages in India."

Surabhi, channel number 110 on the WorldSpace Satellite Radio Network, will offer listeners a wide range of Marathi music, culture and literature in a magazine format that brings to life the diversity and heritage of Maharashtra.

According to the company, Surabhi will attempt to capture the cultural ethos of the Maratha tradition and the interests of Maharashtrians in poetry, literature and theater. The channel recognizes the various aspects of Marathi music and will feature shows for Bhaavgeet (songs with 'bhaav' - emotion), Abhangas (devotional music), Powadas (patriotic songs), Natyasangeet (songs used in plays), Lavani and Lokgeet (folk) and many other sub-genres.

WorldSpace currently offers subscribers in its AsiaStar satellite coverage area seven other regionally and culturally dedicated radio channels with programming in Tamil (KL Radio), Malayalam (RM Radio), Telugu (Spandana), Kannada (Sparsha), Bengali (Tara), Punjabi (Tunak Punjabi), and Urdu (Falak).
