Secret of Love
Manish Vyas was born in the state of Gujarat in India, and grew up in a family of musicians. His childhood was immersed in a unique atmosphere of joyful dance along with meditation and spirituality – with music ever-present in his family’s daily life. It has remained a major part of his life ever since, as the prolific artist reveals and re-imagines the spiritual heart of his native India with each new work.
His new album Secret of Love is inspired by the mystery and the varied hues of love in its many forms. It traverses a vibrant spectrum of emotions and feelings --- from sentimentally romantic to wistfully nostalgic, from quietly contemplative to joyful and dancing – with each unfolding in its fullest expression and manifested from the same source: love.
Such emotional breadth is conveyed in seven finely-crafted tracks, including six original compositions paying tribute to love. Throughout, Manish Vyas’ warm yet powerful voice is framed by such traditional Indian instruments as the santoor, sarangi, dholak, tabla, and bansuri flute as well as by violin, keyboards, bass, drums, electric piano and subtle programming. Spirited choral background vocals by four talented singers contribute to the richly lush soundscape. In Vyas’ music, a mix of styles is carefully melded, with elements of popular Indian folk music, Sufi qawwali influences and ghazal evoking an exotic sense of romance in a magical setting. The new album was recorded in Pune, Rajkot and Mumbai in India, and mixed and mastered in Germany.
Manish Vyas’ music touches people of diverse ages and cultures. His path is freedom, resulting in a constant innovation and reinvention of musical forms and styles over his productive career, with an openness to experiment with and re-create his music with versatility and originality.
A composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Manish was first a notably talented tabla player and a student and disciple of India’s esteemed late master percussionist Usted Allarakha. Later on, Vyas added his own distinctive voice to the music and also learned to play santoor, the ancient stringed instrument traditionally used in the shimmering folk music of Kashmir. His frequent collaborations with musicians of different backgrounds have taken Manish to share his music far and wide outside of India. His collaborators have included western devotional music superstars Prem Joshua, Snatam Kaur and Deva Premal, but his own solo work pushes boundaries beyond the mantra and new age genres and into the broad realm of global world music. White Swan Records is proud to release Secret of Love on May 6, 2016
