Prasãd : His Blessings
Copyright 2008 all rights reserved
"I first heard this music in India and enjoyed it so much, I made a note to buy it on my return home. I love its musical blend of classical and modern India. Manish Vyas's voice is rich and clear - hypnotic in the more soothing tracks and lively in the upbeat songs. The bansuri flute is one of my favorites, then add the tabla drums and I feel like I'm right back in India. Some tracks are perfect to play in a slow and mindful yoga flow practice." Amazon review
Through exceptional artistry, Manish Vyas shares the richness of his Indian musical heritage, revealing a classical music for modern India that speaks to eastern as well as western audiences.
Featuring Bikram Singh’s gorgeous bansuri flute and Manish’s expertise on Tabla, Santoor and vocals, these expertly crafted instrumentals and mantras move with focused, steady exhalations and inhalations — a soul-stirring Prasãd (blessing) for every listener.
I have loved listening to your prasad cd since march when I saw you first in concert with Snatam Kaur… but to hear you live was so blissful…i am still whirling!

We enjoy the Prasad Cd, for that is what it is! My husband was thrilled to hear the live sound of you playing tabla. Thank you so much. Your stories help us so much and freed us in the laughter of being human.

Thank you for creating Prasad and Sattva. We were traveling in Monterey, California, Ambrosia Indian restaurant and they recommended your CD’s. We have been searching for these songs for decades and finally found it. Your passion shows up in the music and it is very peaceful and soothing to the soul and very alive.

I listen to Sattva and Prasad almost obsessively! Somehow listening to your music touches the depths of my very soul. I feel the Spirit of God flow through all that I AM and i feel humbled and rejoicing.
