Tomasz Podgórski - A composer, multi-instrumentalist. Started making music since the beginning of the 90’s. Practically, from that time on, Tomasz has been inventing his miscellaneous, rich in sound and characteristics music. The sounds of his ethnic instruments get mingled with the modern electro-acoustic vibes giving outstanding effects.

Co-creator of the Manasuna band’s sound in which he leaves his notable footprint, mainly through playing the oriental string instruments from his own collection. A few of the instruments he plays, were even designed by himself because Tomasz is a re-inventor of the Indian and Persian instruments.

Thanks to friendships and broad contacts with the Indian instrument makers, mainly with Zakir, Ashish (Sathyadeep Musical Palace), Sanjeev (Raj Musicalas), a unique sitar came into being in Miray – Mayuri sitar, forgotten on the Indian land string instrument taus (mayuri veena) - Sundara Taus and Rajam Taus, santur - Mayuri Santur and several more creations handcrafted and labeled with the name of the Polish artist.
