She was a disciple of Dilipkumar Roy, with whom she composed several songs. Her popularity coincided with the increase in the popularity of Bengali songs in the 1920s and 1930s. With the growth of people interested in listening to musical records, the gramophone companies in Bengal competed with each other to produce increasing number of records by new composers, lyricists and singers. Bose belongs to that generation of Bengali singers who gainfully capitalized on the outburst in popular interest in Bengali songs which also coincided with the ongoing national movement. Such was her popularity, that Mahatma Gandhi described her as ‘The Nightingale of Bengal’ in 1937.
