” Vyas’ great imagination and North American background occupy the heart of eclectic, post-modern, inter-cultural, 21st century music making.”
Vineet Vyas is one of Canada’s dynamic musical talents. He is a disciple of the legendary Tabla maestro, Pandit Kishan Maharaj.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia Vineet comes from a family of traditional musicians from India: his grandfather Pandit Brahmanand Vyas, was a renowned vocalist and initiated him into Hindustani classical music at the age of five.
"I am so happy to see Vineet carrying forward the legacy of his monumental Guru. This album truly is a testimony of that era and that relationship. Dhamaar was a time cycle that was synonymous with Pandit Kishan Maharaj. The musical presentation in this recording captures the literal story of Dhamaar and the way the taal is to be unfolded by the school of Banaras.
