The objective of the event is to weave a fabric, which mirrors the unparalleled cultural equity of India and will showcase the finest of creative expression in all genres including music, in both traditional and contemporary art forms. Our endeavor is to cut across all boundaries of age, borders, language, religions and to portray the world as a ‘OneZone’ enhancing No borders, barriers and needs no language to be understood. Integration of love and compassion is the theme of the festival. We plan to have it four times a year (every quarterly) in different parts of India and simultaneously abroad. In today’s economic, social and political environment Delhi is the ideal hub where the eyes of the world are focussed, this is why we have chosen to do our first festival in Delhi on Human Rights day.

Being a commercial venture, OneZone festivals will present commercial concerts of Indian and international musical artists like Bob Marley’s sons Ziggy and Stefen Marley’s performances. OneZone Festivals also binds the world together through Art Exhibitions, Seminars, Craft and Cultural shows by showcasing on a common platform.The audiences will get a flavour to versatile musical genres from the maestro's of the Western, Asian and Arab world The festival will be charged with rare artistic fervour created out of the coming together of sound and music of different parts of India and the world.

The OneZone Festivals is a global initiative, which will span different cities and countries each year. To build a bridge between the east and the west will be the aim of the festival. This festival hence will touch the hearts of the masses and continue the message of true love and compassion in everyday life. The festival from next year will be a 2 day festival, and very much like a mini Festival of India in which culture and music is exhibited from around the world-into the world.

The OneZone Festivals will also serve as a fundraiser for it’s sister concern UstadGah Music Foundation to enable the three year training and living expenses of it’s students, thus the festival helps create livelihood opportunities for those music students who further preserve the culture and heritage of India and the world, because it is these students who will be the artists of tomorrow through whom our heritage in music is not only preserved but also carried around the world and down the generations.  The OneZone Festivals concept will facilitate a life of dignity for these future artists, which is self reliancy and not solely dependent on donations and sponsorships.

  • Bring the best people in the Arts together; artists from various parts of the world who will contribute, through their genre and talent, to the unity and understanding of all cultures in Music, Craft and Litrature.
