Tomahawk is a music player that fundamentally changes the way music is consumed and shared. It decouples the name of the song from the source it was shared from - and fulfills the request using all of your available sources. This creates a universal translation layer across music repositories, streaming services and geographic territories.

To install Tomahawk, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install tomahawk

To upgrade Tomahawk, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade tomahawk
