Mia Tansen (born 1493 or 1506 died 1586 or 1589) is considered among the greatest composer-musicians in Hindustani classical music. He was an extraordinarily gifted vocalist, known for a large number of compositions, and also an instrumentalist who popularized and improved the plucked rabab (of Central Asian origin).

He was among the Navaratnas (nine jewels) at the court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Akbar gave him the title Miyan (an honorific, meaning learned man). His contribution to the world of music is priceless and is still worshiped by leading singers and composers of the world. He is believed to be the father of Hindustani Music.

Miyan Tansen was among the Navaratnas (nine jewels) at the court of the Mughal Emperor Akbar and was the greatest composer-musicians in Hindustani classical music. The Great Tansen experimented with ragas and formulated the raga Deepak. This raga when sung caused fire in the area of performance. During this time Akbar was the Emperor and his rivals forced Tansen to sing the raga so that every thing gets burnt.
