Pandit Satish Vyas
Pandit Ji was accepted as a disciple by the great legend Padma Vibhushan Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma – a man ‘so identified with his instrument that classical Indian Santoor playing is unthinkable without Shiv Kumar Sharma’s contribution to the art.’

In 1997, he was the only non-Western instrumentalist invited to perform in Venice, Italy at the “Mostra Mozart Festival”, organised by the prestigious European Mozart Foundation. He had also manifested his versatility by performing as a “guest musician” with the Jazz / World Music Fusion Group, “Silk” accompanying the renowned vocalist Shankar Mahadevan, the Percussion maestro Shivamani, well known Composer /Pianist / Keyboard artiste Louis Banks and Karl Peters (Bass Guitar) at a Barbican Centre concert in London few years back.
