Album Notes
Manish Vyas learned to play tabla at the best address for this complicated Indian percussion instrument: Ustad Alla Rakha (the late father of Zakir Hussain). Born in India to a family of musicians, Manish performed for many years as a singer, percussionist and composer in traditional kirtan bands, gathering plenty of knowledge about traditional folk, bhajans and the energetic Qawwali music from the Sufi tradition. He is an accomplished player of the santoor, an instrument from Kashmir with 86 strings, as well as keyboards and the Indian harmonium. Manish has integrated many different styles into his music as a result of playing with many international musicians. He has toured worldwide with Prem Joshua, and performed and co-written music with Deva Premal and Chinmaya Dunster.

Very relaxing and very soothing music!


A wonderful introduction into this culture
The religious music of different world cultures intrigues me. This CD is a very enjoyable exposure to something very new and different to me.

I know I will play it often.
