Manish Vyas

Manish Vyas, composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer from India, has emerged as a unique phenomenon in the world of fusion and devotional music. He grew up in a family of musicians and studied music with some of the most recognized pandits in India. From a young age, he followed a path deeply marked by two spiritual masters, Osho and Gurudev, who had an amazing impact in his life. Manish Vyas has a broad musical palette: his distinctive voice, santoor and tanpura (string instruments), swarmandal (Indian harp), tabla and keyboards. His compositions have deep Indian musical roots while also embracing a wide diversity of other expressions – folk, classical, kirtan, Sufi, jazz, and lounge – the result of decades of dedicated practice, performance and meditation. Manish is constantly reinventing musical forms with his endless creativity, delivering a lovingly and carefully sculptured product to a highly receptive audience, in which each sound has been selected to promote extraordinary awareness.
