Ramana has developed his own style and technique to adapt the harmonica-a distinctively western instrument, to the music of his own country which was influenced by Milon Gupta. He prefers to play soulful music and remains alive through changing times with a fresh and simple approach. He evokes the nostalgia of his favorite music directors and singers of India like Ilaiyaraja, Salil Chowdhury, RD Burman, SD Burman , AR Rahman, SP Balasubrahmanyam , S Janaki, Lata Mageshkar, Kishore Kumar, Md Rafi and Asha Bhonsle leaving his audience with utmost satisfaction.
