Carnatic music exponent and guru Nedunuri Krishna Murthy died here in the early hours of Monday. He was 87. The doyen of Carnatic music breathed his last at his house in MVP Colony. He had been suffering from a lung ailment for some time. He is survived by a son – Nedunuri Pinakapani – and two daughters.

Born in Kothapalli in Pithapuram Taluk in 1927, he trained in violin under Dwaram Narasinga Rao Naidu and at his guru’s suggestions switched to vocal. He later received intensive training under Sripada Pinakapani.

His mortal remains were consigned to flames on Monday afternoon after Minister for Panchayati Raj Ch Ayyanna Patrudu and Chief Secretary IYR Krishna Rao reached the city and paid official tributes.
