Born in Nagpur from a family of classical musicians, Mangesh probably learnt to sing before even being able to talk. Notes were to become his natural means of expression and he started composing along with his father at a very young age.

In 2002, he joined the Film and Television Institute of India where he spent four years studying thoroughly sound engineering and cinema at a global level. These precious years of total immersion within the visual arts opened a whole new dimension to his approach and use of music for the cinema.

He moved to Mumbai in 2006 and was soon requested to compose for various feature films, a few of which became popular and were praised for their witty and soulful background scores.

Enriched with the multicultural musical influences he was exposed to as a child such as jazz, Western classical and Brazilian music through the encounter of various foreign musicians attending his father's school, and strong with a solid knowledge of Indian classical music (Patiala Gharana), Mangesh has been in constant search for new sounds and styles, exploring uncommon combinations of genres and instruments, resulting in the atypical and powerful compositions we have and are yet to experience on the screen.
