Born on 16th November 1952, Pandit Satish Vyas started learning vocal music from his father at the age of 14 as a result of listening to a Santoor recital. Although his initial grounding took place in the idiom of his father's lingo as it were, it was to Santoor that young Satish's heart was set. At the request of his father, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma took Satish on as his disciple. The combination of training under both his father and Shivji has given Satish an ability to display gayaki ang as well as layakari / tantrakari ang in his Santoor playing.
Pandit Satish Vyas has been a regular concert artist for the last two decades or so, performing and recording all over India and the world, more extensively in the USA, UK & Europe, Japan and Australasia. He has contributed materially in popularising the Santoor in remote places, not only performing in small villages and towns in India but abroad as well, in addition to major city centres. 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. Satish Vyas 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.
