The following information was shared by a person who is not a member here asking me to create a thread for this composer.

Śrī Ādibhaṭla Nārāyaṇa Dāsu.(1864-1945) wrote Kritis in Samskrutam, Telugu and Accha-Telugu or Telugu from which Samskrutam words were exluced. Śrī Nārāyaṇa Dāsu was a poet, musician, vaggeyakara "Laya Brahma", "Panchamukhi Parameswara" (titles he earned for his ability to sing a Kriti synchronising it with five Talas (beat with two hands, two feet and head) and the creator of the composite art form, "Harikatha" comprising Puranik storytelling; reciting poetry, performing music (both pre-written and extempore); dancing and acting. He has been hailed as the "Versatile genius".
