Pooja Goswami Pavan, PhD, was born in a musical family and received her early training in Hindustani (North Indian) classical music from her father, Sri Surendra Goswami. She also trained with the eminent vocalist Shanti Hiranand, the reigning queen of Thumri and Ghazal, semi-classical vocal genres, and the universally acclaimed successor of the legendary vocalist, the late Begum Akhtar. The versatility in Dr. Goswami’s repertoire is evident in her ability to sing Thumri, Dadra, Ghazal, Bhajan and various folk genres (e.g. Chaiti, Kajri) in addition to Khayals. In 2005, she completed a doctorate in music at the University of Delhi and has held adjunct faculty positions at the School of Music, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and Macalester College, Saint Paul, Minnesota, teaching courses in Indian music and culture. Dr. Goswami has performed widely internationally.
