Nedunuri Krishnamurthy passes away
Nedunuri Krishnamurthy passes away Music sustains yet another sad loss

Sangita Kalanidhi Nedunuri Krishnamurthy is no more. The veteran exponent of the Pinakapani bani, a role model for young vocalists, was 87 when he passed away at Visakhapatnam in the early hours of Monday, 8th December 2014. He was ailing from lung cancer.

Nedunuri leaves behind an impressive brand of vocalism, exemplified by his prime disciples the Malladi Brothers. His music was soulful, steeped in classicism, and had a lingering quality to it. He was the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Sangita Kalanidhi and the Central Sangeet Natak Akademi award.

With his tremendous work on tuning the songs of Annamacharya, Nedunuri leaves behind a rich legacy of both great singing and devoted academic work.

Sruti published a cover story on Nedunuri Krishnamurthy in February 1992 (Sruti 90). His interviews have also been published in later issues of the magazine.
