Harry Manx has been called an "essential link" between the music of the East and of the West. He combines the tradition of blues music with classical Indian ragas. In the '80s, Manx began a five-year tutelage with Rajasthani musician and Grammy winner, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Bhatt is the inventor of the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Manx's signature instrument and the catalyst for Manx to embark on his style of music.

In February 2014, Manx was on route to perform in Wisconsin when he travelled through Chicago's O'Hare airport. It was there that his one-of-a-kind instrument was taken from the baggage claim. Manx wrote about the loss of his Mohan Veena on his Facebook page. The post was eventually seen by over 5.5 million people after Manx's contacts began sharing the news with their friends.

With so much attention to the theft, Chicago police prioritized their monitoring of the baggage claim area at O'Hare. Just over a week later, the police caught a man allegedly trying to steal more luggage at the airport. The suspect disclosed the location of Manx's Mohan Veena, taken in the earlier theft. Manx was contacted and returned to Chicago to collect his beloved instrument.

Upon his return to Vancouver, Manx stopped in at the CBC studio to give this performance with his newly recovered treasure.
