Many Westerners consider Indian music to be difficult to access. This should clearly be different for the pieces of Manish Vyas, although these are also deeply rooted in the many traditions of India. The Indian composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer creates meditative pieces of music, which, with their quiet beauty and reducedness seem amazingly catchy and contemporary, especially the melodies and sounds, but also the rhythms. At times, the music is even carried by soft electronic beats. Who is behind this music?
