Concerts - Remembering Jayasree

This concert was to pay tribute to a young, Hindustani vocalist Jayasree Sengupta, who came to England in 2000 with an ambition to make Leeds her home, and share her deep love for music and life.
In the short time that she was here, Jayasree became an inspiration and Guru for many, however, her determination and passion for life touched all who she came in contact with her.
