Marquee Theme : Features That Worth

Split Screen Layout : The advanced layout makes this music theme a great solution for musicians and modern internet users. The split screen layouts shares entire screen into two parts : half on left and half on right. The left portion is used as header area to display logo, menu toggle and audio player.
