Oldest Powada on Record - AfzalkhanVadh

'Assasination of Afzal Khan' by Shahir Adnyaandas :-

The oldest powada today available is "Afazal Khanacha Vadh" (Assasination of Afzal Khan) by Shahir Agindas alias Adnyandas. Judging by the well-knit of composition and style of the ballad, we can safely assume that the art of 'Shahiri' had developed considerably when this was written.
Here is the Powada - which has been short framed by Shahir Prabhakar Jamkhedkar for radio transmission (Akashwani Mumbai).
