Sada Sharanam - a tribute to the guru and composer, Shri Ravikiran, aims to encapsulate some of the scintillating pieces of the master composer through a set of instructional DVDs where the student gets the benefit of learning various genres of compositions from the maestro himself. This is apart from learning the background/inspiration behind the compositions along with insights about the musical and mathematical nuances intended by the composer. The product includes tana varnams, pada varnams, krtis and tillanas in entertaining and popular ragas as well as evocative rakti ragas. Unmai Unarndor, a ragamalika composition and a thought provoking social critique, enhances the colour of the presentation.
Ravikiran, hailed as "an unprecedented phenomenon" when he made his debut at the age of two (in 1969) with an uncanny ability to identify and demonstrate 325 ragas and 175 talas and answer numerous other technical questions posed by several stalwarts, gave his first vocal concert at five and first chitravina recital at the age of 12 and is today, one of the most sought after artistes in the world. The substance and quality of Ravikiran's contribution in the versatile roles of chitravina virtuoso, composer, vocalist, guru and author are held in the highest regard across the world. He attributes all his success to his gurus Chitravina Narasimhan and Sangita Kalanidhi T Brinda.
