Pune, Jan 13: Legendary classical singer Prabha Atre passed away following a brief illness at a private hospital here on Saturday, family sources said.

 Conferred the Padmashri (1990), Padma Bhushan (2002) and Padma Bhushan (2022), plus many other national-international honours, Prabha was an exponent of the Kirana Gharana music school, excelling in rendition of khayals, thumris, ghazal, dadri, bhajans and natyasangeet.
