Runki’s Love for Music

Music connoisseur Runki Goswami is a well-known name in Indian Classical music. She also sings country, contemporary folk, modern and Bollywood songs in 17 different Indian languages.

Born in Asansol, West Bengal, Runki started her formal training in music at the age of 3 years. She is trained in the ‘Dilli’ and Chandigarh gharanas from the Prayag Sangeet Samiti.

Creating a legacy of music as an antidote to diseases, she has also been actively working in reviving raga therapy to heal patients with  diseases such as asthma, spine issues and stomach problems etc.

Runki Goswami started her professional music career with a self-composed Bengali devotional album, Debobeena.

The lyrics of this album were written by her father, Dr Malay Kumar Laik. Runki composed and directed the music and also lent her voice to it.

The album was released pan-India by Keerthana Music. Following this, she was music director for two Telugu films, Thedavaste Fighter (Writer) and Trivikraman.

In 2018, Runki Goswami represented India at the Indian High Commission stage in London. She is a regular performer on the national and internal podium.

Runki Goswami, The Author

Adding a new feather to her cap, Runki—who is also a doting mother and a beautiful wife—launched her first book, A World Full of Babies, in 2022.

The book speaks about Runki’s passion for music and its impact on her life. As explained in her book, Indian music teaches about ‘togetherness’ and ‘healing with music’ and the fact that frequencies and wavelengths of sounds extract feelings and emotional responses from the conscious and subconscious minds.

Her book takes a deep dive into the history of Indian classical music to the elements that make all lore folksy and its connection with occult.

The book is not just about Indian classical music, but also talks about other Regional, Pop/Rock and Contemporary music. A World Full of Babies is available at the Crossword Bookstore and also online at Amazon.
