World Music Day / International Music Day

By Kash Pals @wizmagic1

If you are a music lover, then you might not want to miss this out...

June 21 has been designated as #worldmusicday, a day the world celebrates the magical gift of music. It's origins lie in France when, in 1976, American musician Joel Cohen, proposed an all-night music celebration to mark the beginning of the summer solstice and since then, it has become a worldwide phenomenon having their own celebrations in their own way, regardless of the season.

Since its creation by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in 1982, the "Fête de la Musique" became the largest international live music event in the world and now gathers 450 cities in more than 120 countries.

Celebrated every 21st of June, the World Music Day is a grand and popular affair, free and open to all musicians, whether amateur or professional. It brings 'live' music 'alive' in all its diversity and its myriad genres. It aims at bringing universal entertainment to the young and not so young, to penetrate every strata of society ...
