One day into the lockdown, we stood motionless, wondering how the artist would even reach its old and gold audience, let apart the new and untapped.

with The Maitri Project.Why? Because artists needed a stage and an audience, and the audience wanted quality and effortless entertainment while at home. 7 months and 50 shows hence, we are still going forward cultivating a 'Maitri' or 'Friendship' between the artists and the audience and spread some happiness through the best of our efforts. This is just a beginning though. Thank you to all who supported us and the artists in turn. Your constant support keeps us motivated.

His mastery has won over many stages and it has been a privilege to say that he was once a part of Alakh, our classical music concert initiative. A renowned name in the field of Sitar, he is truly one of the most precious gems of Indian Classical Music.

As lockdown was imposed, we wondered not just about the livelihood of artists but also about their state of mind, if they lost touch with their audience?
Being a thick community of people from art and culture, we decided to become the stage and the audience and fill the gap immediately. We turned the tables to invite one artist as an audience to the performance of another artist, for beautiful collaborations stem out as we observe others. We marketed the shows and personally invited those who could create shows with featured artists as things open.
This was the birth of The Maitri Project.
