Swara Samrat festival first started to take place on January 2013. It was an initiative taken by a cultural organisation `Shreeranjani` and led by the famous Sarod player Pandit Tejendra Narayan Majumder. The aim of this program was to commemorate the 90th birth anniversary of Pandit Ali Akbar Khan for which Pandit Ravi Shankar was also informed. But unfortunately Pandit Ravi Shankar died on 11th December 2012. After this the organisers decided to dedicate this musical festival to both of the maestros. It was first organised in Nazrul Mancha auditorium in Kolkata.
