The Story Of The Internationally Acclaimed Indian Musician – Manan

in Entertainment by

A musician with the accolades to back up his talent, Manan has won many hearts during his journey towards living his dream. Be it winning the acoustic guitar category in the Six String Theory International Competition, or performing at the Zihuatanejo International Festival in Mexico, he has proved, over and over again, that he is the talent that the world’s been waiting for. Manan has also performed in the NAMM show, 2017, and even has been one of the speakers and performers at a TEDx convention in Mumbai. The cherry on top of the musician’s accolades, for us, is making our nation proud by getting signed to the US based record label, ‘Fretmonkey Records’.

My parents discovered my aptitude for music at a very early age and got me professionally trained in western classical piano.”




An early discovery of talent

The talented musician exhibited an interest in music at a very young age, and was fascinated when his grandmother played the keyboard. His family discovered his talent and his detailed eye for music when he played a popular tune on his grandmother’s keyboard, without any training. Manan says, “My parents discovered my aptitude for music at a very early age and got me professionally trained in western classical piano.” This was the beginning of a promising career for him, which eventually opened up to different avenues. Manan is a full time musician, who produces music for TV commercials, corporate AV, indie films, etc. He simultaneously teaches music and performs at various festivals.

 

Earlier I use to get motivated by listening to other people’s music. But now, I get motivated by personal life experiences. Travelling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures inspire me a lot.”

Internalizing his motivation

A tight schedule requires a lot of dedication and motivation to get through. And, Manan has both of these attributes up his sleeve.  He says, “Earlier I use to get motivated by listening to other people’s music. But now, I get motivated by personal life experiences. Travelling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures inspire me a lot.” Internalizing the source of his motivation, instead of drawing his motivation from external sources, we believe, is the transformative phase in the musician’s life. He is now focusing on releasing his debut album, and we just can’t wait for the bold musician to share more of his music to the world.
