Sandeep Ranade (alias "Naadrang"; born 1981) is an Indian Classical khayal vocalist from Pune. He became internationally recognized for his composition about coronavirus, "Na Corona karo," which went viral on social media.[2] Ranade is regarded for his work about the techniques, aesthetics, and philosophy of music articulated as a contemporary "naad yoga".

Background[edit]

Born in Bangalore, Ranade began learning music at an early age and gave his first public performance at age 6.[3] He studied computer software and engineering at University of Pune and Johns Hopkins University, later working at Microsoft and Google.[4] Ranade performed music extensively across North America during that time. He later returned to Pune to focus on music, teach, and build a start-up.[1]

Career[edit]

Ranade frequently gives performances[5][6] and has performed throughout North America and India.[7][8][9][10] As a supporting vocalist, he has accompanied Pandit Jasraj twice at the Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Mahotsav.[11]

Coronavirus Song[edit]

On March 18, 2020, Ranade spontaneously composed a song in Raag Basant, "Na Corona karo," about how to prevent transmitting the coronavirus just as Indian public health officials began implementing curfews.[12][13][14] Widely circulated on WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, Ranade's song won praise for its creativity and clear messaging about how to stay safe.[15][16]

Popular musicians like A. R. Rahman,[17] Pandit Jasraj, Shankar Mahadevan, Daler Mehndi,[18] Adnan Sami, Shubha Mudgal, Meeta Pandit, and others publicly praised Ranade for his composition and singing.[19] Ranade was named alongside other pop musicians who worked to raise awareness about COVID-19 prevention.[20][21] Ranade appeared on several media outlets to discuss his song and why hygiene and social distancing are so important to prevent the virus from spreading.[22][23][24]

Musicianship[edit]

Ranade is considered a leading musician of the Mewati gharana and disciple of Pandit Jasraj.[25] He also learned from Shobha Abhyankar and Anjali Joglekar-Ponkshe.[26] Critics have celebrated the lustrous quality of Ranade's voice and musicality.[27]

NaadSadhana for iOS[edit]

Ranade has developed an iOS app for practicing riyaaz and developing shrutis, called "NaadSadhana".[28] Utilizing AI, NaadSadhana utilizes iOS's low-latency capabilities[29] for responsive feedback.[30] Ranade's app has been praised as "world-class" by technologists and musicians.
