Highway 61 is “Sufi Ethnic” Rock band based out of Pune. Their music embodies “Music, Expression, Freedom” - a fusion of classic rock with Urdu/Hindi lyrics. The name 'Highway 61' is a metaphor for finding a road to freedom, with nothing but one’s own creativity as the compass. The music resounds with contemporary references and an informed understanding of the two-faced times we live in.

The People:
Mohammad Muneem: Lead Vocals/Lyricist: He has been writing and singing since the age of fourteen.

Rohit Vasudevan: Lead Guitars/Backing Vocals: He is a classically trained Sitarist. All this apart, he pilots the band’s craft during his solos and is a super vocalist in his own right.

Jatin Kale: Lead Guitars: In Jatin, Highway 61 has a Metal-head. His power-packed high voltage solos lend the energy to the feel of the sets.

Rahul Majumdar: Bass Guitars/Backing Vocals: Trained in Hindustani Classical Music and Tabla since the age of 4, Rahul has been into music for over 20 years.

Hardik Vaghela: Keys/Backing Vocals: Hardik lends an air of creativity to the band. His fillers, environment fills and keyboard solos make every song complete.

Bombay Bassment is an urban outfit made solid by two Goans, one South Indian and one African. This eclectic mix of artists has led to a sound that defines the grass roots of each, the outcome of which is an upbeat blend of Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggae, Funk & Drum ‘n Bass. Despite different cultural and therefore musical backgrounds, the band still manages to pull off a sound that cuts through every soul.

Yet to figure out the source of this artistic force, the band is on an expedition to play as much, to as many.

Kwest Konnection is a duo consisting of DJ/producer Chantz and DJ/Emcee Bobcat. The duo has been a part of the Mumbai club scene for over a decade.

Dhruv Deshpande
New to the scene, Dhruv Deshpande introduces himself as just another guy who thinks he's funny. 

Daniel Fernandes
Daniel Fernandes bid adieu to a career in advertising and took to stand up comedy last year. His material is based on his experiences with travel, 69 failed relationships and his favourite Indian community amongst other things. He feels pretty much anything he has to face in life has comic potential so why not just laugh it off and pretend it never happened?     

Angad Singh Ranyal
The thinnest sardar alive, born and brought up in Libya, and hence culturally confused. He also holds the world record for being the millionth Indian to opt for MBA after completing his engineering. A marketing major who keeps his sanity intact by making fun of everything and anything, including himself. Sarcasm runs in his blood, that's Angad Singh Ranyal for you.

Having kept up with the changing circuit, his skills extend from Retro to Rock, Hip-Hop to House, Bollywood and beyond. His style of playing is matchless. Be it rock or retro, if it’s the rare stuff you want to hear, you’ll hear it from his console. His hip-hop tunes cause dancers to play a game of 'move and sway with me.

DHARAVI ROCKS is a joint educational project between Acorn Foundation, an NGO and the Blue Frog working for the welfare of slum children and Waste collectors/Rag-pickers. Dharavi Rocks' mission is to give slum kids a voice by initiating them into music, bringing positive and happy creative experiences into their lives and creating a bond between communities. We create music out of waste materials like drum barrels, coffee shakers, paint cans, plastic boxes emphasising on the concept of Recycle, Reuse & Respect.​

Abhijit is the music teacher who teaches them music in such a way that it helps children realise their hidden musical talents and helps inculcate a learning discipline that also could find them livelihood opportunities in Mumbai’s large entertainment industry.
We also organise workshops for Dharavi Rocks with International bands, Musicians and Actors. It helps all the kids get exposure towards different genres of music and understanding from the experts.
