I have read that Sri. Chikka Rama Rao (1890s to mid-1940s), one of the luminaries of the Mysore Durbar was a vaggeyakara as well.
I have not come across any rendition of his kritis.
I have a list of about a dozen of his kritis (I do not have the lyrics, just a list) which prompted me to open up a discussion about yet another eminent vidwan from Mysore that we, the present generation seem to have forgotten.

I hope this thread will initiate some discussion and hopefully, some downloadable renditions of his kritis.
