Hi all
I have personally heard and enjoyed his two thillanas,one in ragam Hamsanandi and the other in Behag.Both are master pieces and one should really admire his kanaku and jatis incorporated in these.I believe more is in store and i love to hear them mainly due to the flawless composing of the thillanas and the jatis as Sri Rajarao himself a Great Percussionist have put in his experience in these compositions.Hats off to Raja rao mama.
