Ravi Basrur is one of those few people who have the courage to leave a high paying career, set a path away from the established family business and follow their dreams. Ravi had been working as a programmer for 14 years before he finally decided to take the leap of faith and join the entertainment industry. Ravi hails from a family deeply interested in music and in his own words, he grew up listening to yakshagan and bhajans. Sculpture-making is the family business and needless to say the art runs in the family blood.

Ravi says that his interest in music developed in his formative years only when his grandparents used to indulge in the prayers. As it can be seen from his career graph also, Ravi loves experimenting and the same can be seen from the music he makes. Such is his versatility that he has worked with nearly eighty percent of the music directors in Kannada, Tamil, and Telugu industry. Ravi started working as an assistant to these music directors while being a music programmer and live rhythm player. Ravi’s musical professional life has involved working as a music programmer for Big 92.7 FM and Radio City 91.1 FM. Since 2008 December, Ravi dedicated himself to working as a music programmer at Shakthi Recording studio. “ Ugramm” is Ravi’s 60th movie since he has been associated with the industry.

It is, however, his first as a Music Director and won him the Zee Music Award for it. Other than this, he has contributed to the music for films like Mrugashira (2014), Ekka Saka (2015) and Ring Master (2015). Ravi Basrur’s music was last heard in the two films- Bilindar (2016) and Karvva (2016). Kavya Christopher of The Times of India wrote a very appreciative review of the soundtracks of Karvva. She stated that not only the title track – Ugramm Veeram – which perfectly captures the feel of the title that translates to aggression, rest of the film tracks take one into a romantic journey of much dreamed sequences which many movie makers ensure are present so as to provide an artistic relief to an otherwise power packed adrenaline rushing storyline.
