I grew up listening to these trangas. My father, uncle and aunt, all sang them. The local farming community used to sing these in their "kolaatam" and "dance" on the road (garba-like). They had group competitions. Those days, bhakti was woven into daily activities and my village had that wonderful atmosphere.

 I was introduced to both artistes (Gopalaratnam & MBK) through Bhaktiranjani program of AIR - Vijayawada, and Voleti Venkateswarlu through his song teaching programs at the same station.
As for Ratnapapa, she now lives in Houston, TX. She is the daughter of one of the Seeta - Anasuya sisters. I saw her perform her Kuchipudi dance in Washington very long time ago. One thing striking about her is her Telugu diction. You will be entranced by just listening to her in normal conversation. When I learned that she is closely related to Devulapalli Krishna Sastri and Balamuralikrishna, I realized where that cultured talk at such a high level came from!

Balamurali sounds rather young in this. Both are fabulous singers!

Seetha & Anasuya are Devulapalli Krishnasasthry's nieces.

ya, bhaktiranjani it is. Hyderabad AIR lo kooda vacchedi. My mom used to listen to it religiously. srirangam gopalaratnam gari paatalu andulo vacchevi and she was an admirer of her. she did have a unique husky voice.ya, ratnapapa anasuya kooturu. I saw seeta-anasuyala performance once. They were the pioneers in bringing some respectability to jaanapada geethalu, i think. Their 'mokka jonna thota lo' was very famous and everyone was waiting for them to sing that song. they did sing, but that was their very last song Smile. Ya, heard that they are related to Devulapalli garu.
