About Master Krishnarao

Master Krishnarao (1898-1974) was a student of Bhaskarbuwa Bakhale. His full name was Krishnarao Phulambrikar. He drew attention of the great Marathi stage actor and singer Bal Gandharva (also a student of Bhaskarbuwa) who inducted Krishnarao into his drama company. Master Krishnarao is not a familiar name today to those living outside Maharashtra and Goa. Krishna Phulambrikar’s exceptional talents cut a wide swath of artistic activity – a vocalist proficient in stage as well as classical music, a repository of ragas especially of the aprachalita kind, a composer for stage and film music, an actor, teacher and author.
