Pannalal Ghosh (31 July 1911 – 20 April 1960), also known as Amal Jyoti Ghosh, was a Bengali Indian flute (bansuri) player and composer. He was a disciple of Allauddin Khan, and is credited with giving the flute its status in Hindustani classical music. His noted disciples include his son-in-law Devendra Murdeshwar, Vijay Raghav Rao, Raghunath Seth, Rajendra Prasanna and Ronu Majumdar.
One of Pannababu’s significant contributions was that he gave the Bansuri an independent identity among the acknowledged traditional instruments like the Been, Sitar, Sarod and Sarangi. In his performances, he essentially rendered the Khayal Gayaki in its fullness. He played compositions set to such Talas as Jhoomra and Tilwada, which today is almost unheard of, by present day flautists. He then proceeded into Madhyalaya structures and finally the Tarana style, which afforded several elements of Tatkari including Jhala techniques, normally played on plucked instruments like Sitar and Sarod.
