The most awaited competition of the year, Inter-School Rock Band Competition ‘Melomania 2019’ held on 17 August 2019 at IMC hall was organized by Hope Academy and sponsored by White Hope Society to promote excellence in music. ‘Melomania’ is a dream project of Mrs. Sashizungla Ao, Founder & Principal of Hope Academy Dimapur and Mr. Purkumzuk, Head Music Teacher of Hope Academy.
People from Nagaland are gifted in the sphere of music. It’s not uncommon to notice that from an early age. People from Nagaland are made for music – “It’s in our blood, it’s in our genes”.
There are lots of young musicians in Nagaland, but they are not getting the platform to showcase their talent. So, Melomania 2019 was organized to recognize and promote the unique talents of school students in the field of music and this event will be organized every year.

The total prize money of ‘Melomania 2019’ was Rs.1,08,000/- which will increase in the future. The break up of prize money were as follow:
