                   For Chitravina N. Ravikiran (Born 1967), music is not just a vocation; it is intrinsically tied to his family history. Ravikiran's father was a master musician himself, and in his son recognized remarkable musical gifts.  As a two year old, he shocked the Indian music community by identifying and rendering 325 ragas (melodic scales) and 175 talas (rhythmic cycles).
