Manish Vyas

Manish Vyas was born in the state of Gujarat, India. He grew up in a family of musicians and spent his childhood around a unique atmosphere of dance, meditation, spirituality… in which music was always present and has been part of his life ever since.

Manish is a composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist – he is a talented Tabla player, a disciple of Ustad Allarakha. Later he added his distinct voice to the music and also learned to play Santoor, an ancient stringed musical instrument which was traditionally used in the folk music of Kashmir. He also plays and teaches harmonium.

Having learnt Indian music since his childhood with respected Indian Maestros, his music reflects the deep feeling of an ancient mystical India, touching the heart of the listener. Given his later years touring in Europe and USA, where he blended his skills with other world musicians, his music incorporated the friendliness to the Western ear – creating a fine blend of his genuine heritage with more contemporary new age sounds.

The feeling behind his music is that of joy, meditation and silence. The range that him and his band cover through vocals and Indian instruments (tabla, santoor, harmonium, keyboards, tanpura, swarmandal, bansuri, sitar) gives raise to different flavors : from devotional prayers, mantras, and songs of love; raising up the rhythm to Kirtan music, followed by uplifting dance-celebration music – to finally return to the meditative shanti (peaceful) music. In this way, covering the whole range of emotions through the musical expression: a reflection of a balanced life: going outwards and coming back inwards. Manish is also a genuine Kirtan and mantra singers who has the true deep understanding of Indian music and keeps its authenticity most gracefully, with true respect to Indian music. www.manishvyas.com
