I wish to share here that SriAdibhatla Kameswara Sarma, the great grandson of Sri Dasugaru is also as versatile as his legendary great grandfather. Sarmaji can reached on mail id - email@example.com
Sarmaji has produced two musical albums and one of them (Aa.Sa.Gitalu) was fully composed by him. Second album's music was done by Mr. Madhavapeddi Suresh.
I humbly request you all to invite Sarmaji for the functions in relation to Sri Dasugaru not only as Dasu garu's progeny but also as a talented great grandson.
