The service and contributions that Telugu composers have made to the world of music are indescribable in mere words. Moreover, it’s safe to say that a typical classical music concert is incomplete without the rendition of a Telugu composition. 

It is a lesser known fact that not only the great Sri Thyagaraja, Sri Annamayya and Sri Ramadasu, but also other Telugu composers like:
