Sad news... Annapurna Devi, noted musician, no more !
Annapurna Devi (popular name, given by former Mahraja Brijnath Singh of former Mehar Estate (M.P.)) (born Roshanara Khan on 23 April 1927),[1] is an Indian surbahar (bass sitar) player of Hindustani Classical Music. She is the daughter and disciple of Allauddin Khan, the founder of Maihar gharana, and from 1941 to 1962 was married to sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, also one of her father's disciples. She gave up public performances to save her marriage with Ravi Shankar, but he divorced her and went to USA in 1962. After her divorce, she never performed again in public. She moved to Mumbai, became a recluse and started teaching. Over the years she has had notable disciples: Hariprasad Chaurasia, Nityanand Haldipur, Nikhil Banerjee, Amit Bhattacharya, Pradeep Barot and Saswatti Saha (Sitar).[2]
