Biography

Manish Vyas is a unique phenomenon in the world of music. A talented multi – instrumentalist and singer,
in the last few years, he has emerged as an extraordinary performing and recording artist.

Music is quite simply in his blood. He grew up in a family, very dedicated and passionate about Indian music and in this atmosphere was exposed to its many different forms: from classical, to ‘kirtan’ to folk.

Realizing his talent at an early age, his mother initiated him into learning the Tabla age 9. A few years of basic initial training let him to the feet of Maestro, Ustad Allarakha in Mumbai, where his training continued for 5 years.

Simultaneously, it was during this same time that Manish was exposed to a totally new genre of music: namely world and fusion music, through meeting a variety of musicians from around the world at the then world-famous Osho Commune International, Pune. During this time, his passion for melody led him to pick up the ‘Santoor’ – a hundred-stringed instrument – and from there, he went on to learning how to sing, then learned both harmonium and keyboards.

Over the last 10 years he has worked with many of the well known names in the “New Age” recording industry, such as Deva Premal (mitendevapremal.com), Prem Joshua (premjoshua.com), Chinmaya Dunster, Shastro (malimba.com), Yashu and many others. He has also appeared as session musician and composer/arranger on over 2 dozen CD’s.

Continuous experimentation with these musicians expanded his horizons beyond Tabla and Indian classical form, but it was his dedicated involvement with them that added to his undoubted talent and versatility that eventually brought him into the limelight.
