Sandeep Ranade (alias "Naadrang"; born 1981) is an Indian Classical khayal vocalist from Pune. He 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.[2] He studied computer software and engineering at University of Pune and Johns Hopkins University, later working at Microsoft and Google.[3] 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[4][5] and has performed throughout North America and India.[6][7][8][9] As a supporting vocalist, he has accompanied Pandit Jasraj twice at the Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Mahotsav.[10]

Musicianship[edit]

Ranade is considered a leading musician of the Mewati gharana and disciple of Pandit Jasraj. [11] He also learned from Shobha Abhyankar and Anjali Joglekar-Ponkshe.[12] Critics have celebrated the lustrous quality of Ranade's voice and musicality.[13]

NaadSadhana for iOS[edit]

Ranade has developed an iOS app for practicing riyaaz and developing shrutis, called "NaadSadhana".[14] Utilizing AI, NaadSadhana utilizes iOS's low-latency capabilities[15] for responsive feedback.[16] Ranade's app has been praised as "world-class" by technologists and musicians."
