Multifold expressions!

Totem Pole is just not music. With today’s generation yearning for multiple avenues to express themselves as they try to carve their identities, the 3-day festival is offers several interactive sessions that can provide great value. Key features in the past have included workshops and seminars addressing creative, technical, and business aspects of the entertainment industry viz: music & multimedia.

Sessions such as “What's your take?” had been organized in which 20 speakers from NGOs like Triratna Prerana Mandal presented their views on a wide spectrum of relevant topics while Kefaya in the last edition of Totem Pole led an interactive lecture/demonstration, discussing the key melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic characteristics of different forms of music, including Jazz, African, & Flamenco.

Performing Artists


Top of the Pole

A signature event of Totem Pole, Top of the Pole is a school band competition. A competition is vital for the growth of an individual especially teenage kids, since it gives them the opportunity to showcase their talent along with creating the awareness and learning to appreciate the talent of their peers.

At TOTEM POLE, we bring the winning Teenage singer/ band the amazing experience of working on their own album mentored and produced by Mr. Ashish Manchanda.

The winning band will be announced as “TOTEMPOLE – BAND OF THE YEAR”.

Winning bands will get the chance to perform on the main stage of Totem Pole Music Festival.

Top of the Pole will have screening and elimination rounds prior to the festival too.

Winners will be awarded with Music Gear as part of gratification.

With so much in a package, Top of the Pole will rock the school crowds and pave the way for the emerging superstars from India!

Chauraha – The Crossroads – A United SAARC Initiative


Chauraha is a “Musical Showcase” which brings together different cultures and roots across the SAARC countries. CHAURAHA would present artistes from the countries of India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal & Maldivess to create a unique showcase from the SAARC region. Given the current cultural-political situation, the timing could not have been better to make concerted efforts towards the manifestation of culture as a unifying factor. Add to it, it is important to present this showcase to the young people of today who are not very acquainted with the rich heritage of this region of the world. Inundated by popular music floating in oft visited places, the youth has little or no familiarity with native music.

Chauraha will present native music from the SAARC countries in a contemporary manner to make young people rock to their own music!
