Thrissur youth enters Guinness for playing flute nonstop

Thrissur, Jan 10 (UNI) A 48-year-old artiste from this city in Kerala today created a Guinness World record for the longest flute marathon by an individual, by playing for 27 hours, 20 minutes and 50 seconds, without a break.
Murali Narayanan broke the official record for the longest flute marathon, set by Katherine Brookes of the United Kingdom in February, 2012. Brooke had played the flute for 25 hours and 48 minutes to achieve the record.
While Brookes set the record only in western music, Murali, who started his feat on the morning of January 9, played Carnatic, Hindustani, western and folk music, before concluding at 1155 hrs today.
The programme, held at a Government High School ground in Thalikkulam, was attended by several dignitaries, including MLA TN Prathapan, Chairman of Sangeetha Nataka Academy Soorya Krishnamoorthy and Guinness representative Sunil Joseph, a statement said here.
Murali was felicitated at a programme, organised at the venue for his achievement, it added.
