Mahesh Babu and Nandini Mahesh, the Founding Directors of Banyan Tree Events, have been in the profession of performing arts for over two decades. Coming from diverse professional backgrounds of Geophysics and Advertising, the two have with a missionary zeal dedicated their efforts in the endeavour of providing a meaningful link between the corporate world and the rich performing arts. Their expertise today is acknowledged as one of the finest in conceptualizing, designing and organizing events. Further they have worked with about a thousand schools, even before and during the course of their Banyan Tree journey. With their vision, rich experience with children and deep study of the arts, artistes and art management, Tender Roots promises a mark of international quality hitherto unknown in this field.
The years of experience led to the concept of ‘Tender Roots Academy of Performing Arts’ which finally took shape in the year 2014, with a soft launch in select schools of Mumbai. Since then we have touched more than 2500 children from more than 30 schools across Mumbai, through school – level interaction sessions, Tender Roots concerts and by giving about 50 young and talented children a platform to shine. The response we have received so far has encouraged us to launch this project in a big way in Mumbai and reach out to many more schools. The Mumbai success story will enable us to expand to other cities in India as well.
Some of the schools we have worked with so far:
– Aditya Birla World Academy
– Bombay Cambridge School
– Cathedral and John Connon School
– DSB International School
– Ecole Mondiale High School
– Hill Spring International School
– Jamnabai Narsee School
– Oberoi International School
– Shishuvan School and more…
