Rules of the game

There are 10 questions to be answered. The answers are all names of famous Carnatic musicians, hence the name 'Tribute to Stalwarts'.

Each question has three audio clips, namely, a, b and c. All the 'a' clips feature famous kritis, while clips 'b' and 'c' feature ragas. Rasikas therefore, would have to identify the sahithyam line from clips 'a' and raga names from clips 'b' and 'c'. After having identified the answers to clips 'a', 'b' and 'c', pick the first letters from these three answers and rearrange or juggle around to get the acronym of a famous Carnatic musician!
