The nine-time Grammy nominee and sitar queen Anoushka Shankar returned to India, in December, for a three-city musical tour

Brookfield Properties was the proud partner of the Anoushka Shankar Project, India Tour 2022, an immersive experience of world music. The tour kickstarted with public and private concerts at Bengaluru on December 11, followed by shows in Mumbai on December 16, and concluded in Delhi, on December 19.

Shankar’s three public shows had a packed house, with a total of more than 5,000 attendees. The private concerts had a more exclusive guest list, featuring the who’s who of the corporate world, including Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, founder and chairperson of Biocon, and Deepak Parekh, chairman of HDFC.

At the shows, the audiences got to witness Shankar’s creative flair. As a composer and performer, she has explored fertile ground in the crossover between Indian music and a variety of genres, including electronica, jazz, flamenco and Western classical music.

As a leading developer and operator of high-quality, sustainability-focused real estate assets around the globe, we support innovation in music and arts, and love creating cultural experiences for our communities. Our association with Shankar is thus a perfect fusion.
