Jayashree Sen Majumdar’s early initiation into music began when she came with her father from Jalpaiguri to Shantiniketan. At Viswa Bharati University she pursued her Master's in Hindustani Classical music and Rabindra Sangeet under renowned Professor of Indian Classical Music, Pandit Mohan Singh Khangura, and Kaberi Kar.

Present at the event was eminent singer Srikantya Acharya who talked about the gradual changes the music has gone through the ages. He also described music albums as the means of delivering ideas.
