Annapurna Devi was a Hindustani classical music surbahar musician from India. Old Maharaja Brijnath Singh of the former Maihar Estate gave her the name 'Annapurna,' and it was by this name that she was widely known.

She was the daughter and pupil of Allauddin Khan, the founder of the Maihar gharana, and Madina Bibi, Ravi Shankar's first wife. She relocated to Bombay after her divorce from Ravi Shankar and never performed in front of an audience again. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Nityanand Haldipur, and Nikhil Banerjee are a few of her famous students.
