Archive video: Evening Program at Shri Krishna Puja 1995. Cabella Ligure, Italy. (1995-0828)
The young and exuberant Anand Murdeshwar kept alive the impressive tradition in bansuri playing, traced to his grandfather, the legendary maestro Pt. Pannalal Ghosh. Though initially attracted to tabla playing, Anand showed interest in the flute in his teens. He received his first lesson in Raga Yaman on the flute from his grandmother, Smt. Parul Ghosh. Later, his father, Pt. Devendra Murdeshwar, groomed him. Anand showed great promise and participated in college and inter college competitions, always bagging the first prize. In his college days, he became a much sought after musician and represented his college and university (Bombay University) in competitions.
In this video he is performing his melodies before Shri Adishakti Mataji in Cabella Ligure at the evening programme of Shri Krishna Puja on 28th August 1995.
