About the founder

Shreya Pujari, the CEO and Founder of Global Notes, embodies a lifelong dedication to music and cultural exploration. Raised in an environment rich with the melodies of Indian folk music, Shreya's journey began at the age of six, singing songs that echoed through her community. Fueled by a profound curiosity for world languages and cultures, her musical pursuits expanded to encompass West African drumming, Indonesian percussion, and Celtic folk songs.

During her travels and performances, including a transformative experience in Europe, Shreya found herself warmly embraced by diverse communities, regardless of her own cultural background. This deepened her commitment to sharing the universal language of music across borders, inspiring her to pursue formal musical education at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

At Berklee, Shreya's studies have focused on Mediterranean music, leading her to immerse herself in the vibrant traditions of flamenco in Spain and explore neighboring cultures through intensive workshops and lessons. Her experiences at Berklee, coupled with her unwavering determination and entrepreneurial spirit, laid the foundation for Global Notes.
