Pandit Manu Seen

Profile Image

Pandit Manu Seen has enjoyed international recognition as one of Ustad Shahid Parvez’ senior disciples. He initially learned tabla and vocal music from his father Pandit Lachhman Singh Seen, absorbing his Punjab gharana influences, but soon picked up the sitar, falling for its charms immediately. He is known for a pure, soulful approach, imbued with captivating rhythms and full of his guru’s technical virtuosity. Outside of music he has an English Literature degree.



Darbar believes in the power of Indian classical music to stir, thrill, and inspire. Explore our YouTube channel, or subscribe to the Darbar Concert Hall to watch extended festival performances, talk and documentaries in pristine HD and UHD quality.
