Indian singer Bombay Jayashri, who sang the opening song of U.S. movie “Life of Pi,” will give a concert at Longgang Cultural Center on May 10.

Jayashri also wrote the lyrics of the intro song “Pi’s Lullaby,” which was composed by Mychael Danna, and earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song — the first such nomination for a Tamil song. At the start of their collaboration, director Ang Lee explained to Jayashri the mood and feeling the song should evoke. Jayashri notes in her blog that he told her: “A child sleeps not because he is sleepy, but because he feels safe.”

Jayashri was born in Kolkata into a family of music connoisseurs and musicians. While growing up in Mumbai, she started training in music under the guidance of her parents. She also studied Hindustani music for about six years and has a bachelor of commerce degree from R.A. Podar College, Mumbai, and also has a diploma in music from Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, New Delhi.

Since 1982, Jayashri has performed at various festivals and venues all across India and in over 20 countries. Her quest to interact and experiment with various forms of music has resulted in collaborations with eminent musicians from around the world. Jayashri has also sung in various films in both the Hindi and Malayalam languages.
