MAKING YOUR CELEBRATION MEMORABLE
The seductiveness and beauty of Eastern sounds are always enjoyed and well received in any event or celebration. With the sofistication of Indian instruments and songs, this music is a great option for enhancing the atmosphere and uplifting the energy of your event with an original touch. Instrumental music for a reception with instruments like sitar, tabla and santoor, is also a beautiful choice. Manish Vyas music from India has a touch of fusion, which incorporates subtle western elements to make it even more loved by eastern and western audiences.

Manish Vyas was born in Gujarat, India and since his childood, he was related to music, having learnt singing, tabla, harmonium and santoor along his life in India with different maestros at different stages. Manish is extremely versatile and makes different types of Indian music,. He was touring many years in the west in US and Europe and currently lives in St. Gallen from whene he gives concerts and conducts workshops and retreats about Indian music and its mythology, yoga and the power of sound . Manish composed and launched about 15 albums... the latest one coming out this summer: Mangalam, "Auspicious" a collection of devotional uplifting music.
How it started...
Manish and his band were invited to play at Sir Paul Mcartney's wedding some years ago. It was a total success, and since that time, he got invited to perform in different weddings. Also, after his own wedding in India, where he made sure the music was really great, many people from the west started to inquiry wanting to hire him for different celebrations. One couple from Germany who hired him after attending one of his concerts, said: "Not only we loved his music and how he sings, but we saw the effect that his music had on the ambience of the venue... and it was really amazing... a mix of joy, positive vibes, children and old people joining the dance... it was like magic. Also their beautiful attire and eastern instruments give a wonderful feel in the wedding."
Manish has the capacity to really uplift the ambience of a celebration, but at the same time, his music has a certain quality and elegance that distinguishes him from the standard Indian music. Currently he is mostly performing music for weddings in Switzerland and around Europe. He has a network of professional musicians who play with him. The size of the band and the number of performers included is related to the budget for the music. Requirements are a platform and sound system.
Indian weddings are full of different rituals performed for good luck.
Colors, flowers, fire, food, sweets. water, perfumes
its all magic, romantic and really special
Music is an essential component of this call for auspicious beginnings.
In western weddings, usually we ask the couple and if they agree, we include a song for Ganesha,
the elephant deity, since he is considered to bring good luck and praised as the destroyer of all obstacles in projects, weddings and other new beginnings.
Music is known as the universal language of the heart and wedding is one of the most touching moments of life. It brings along mixed feelings of pleasure and pain that it becomes difficult to express. At this point of time, music comes to rescue. The family members of both the bride and groom utilize this tool to express their feelings and celebrate the occasion. In India, the wedding music is basically a mixed bag as it contains traditional, folk and contemporary themes. It is the perfect choice to set a joyful, celebrating mood, with a touch of originality.
The most beautiful things are associated memories and moments. If you don't celebrate those, they can pass you by.
