Founded in the year 2015 by Annapurna Devi herself, the Foundation now carries forward her extraordinary legacy of music.

Annapurna Devi was the daughter of the legendary musician and Guru of Hindustani classical music, Acharya Baba Allauddin Khan-sahib.

Such was her mastery over the surbahar that her memory will forever remain entwined with this formidable instrument.

As a Guru, she leaves behind an illustrious lineage of musicians who have pushed the musical possibilities of instruments ranging from the sitar, the sarod and the surbahar to the flute, the violin and the dilruba.


Keeping the legacy alive

A Glimpse of Greatness

Listen to three stealth-recordings of Annapurna Devi recorded around the 50s: Yaman Kalyan (in a duet with Pt. Ravi Shankar), Manj Khamaj and Kaushiki. Despite the muddiness of these recordings, a discerning listener will sense an ethereal quality in the music.
