Roshanara Khan, who was later renamed Annapurna Devi, was born in 1927. Her father was the founder of the Maihar Gharana of Indian Classical Music, so she learnt to play the Surbahar under the tutelage of her father. Ravi Shankar, who was one of her father's students, asked for her hand in marriage and the two were married for two decades. . Annapurna Devi's performances have seldom been recorded, as the last time she performed publicly was during the 1950's alongside then husband Ravi Shankar. Nevertheless, Devi is considered to be a Hindustani Classical musician of the highest calibre, with maestros such as Pandit Hariprasad Chairasia and Nikhil Banerjee being amongst her many students. Though she does not perform publicly, she has continued to teach the Maihar Gharana style of music, carrying on her father's legacy along with her brother Ali Akbar Khan. . Her enigmatic personality has been of interest to many, and as legend goes, the Beatle George Harrison was asked by Indira Gandhi if she could do anything for him during a visit to India in the 1970's. He replied that he would like to hear Devi play. After much persuasion, she agreed to let him sit in on her daily riyaz (practice). . Annapurna Devi lives in Mumbai and maintains her private life whilst continuing to teach at the age of 90.
