“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” says Billy Joel, as humans we love music, we find solace in music, we find it peaceful, we find it calming. So it’s only justified that we celebrate the artists and this form of art and give it a special day!
Every year on June 21, World Music Day commemorates and celebrate artists and singers for the gift of music, which gives life to everything and provides wings to the creativity. Many people believe that a world without music would be meaningless, and World Music Day is celebrated to honour this magnificent skill and power.
It’s also known as Make Music Day and ‘Fete de la Musique’ in French.
Due of the Covid-19 outbreak, there will be no public concerts to commemorate World Music Day this year.
In 1982, France was the first country to commemorate World Music Day. This event was approved by the Minister of Art and Culture, Jack Lange, as well as a well-known French composer named Maurice Fleuret. Every year on June 21, the day of the summer solstice, it is commemorated. The goal was to get people out on the streets and enjoy themselves while listening to music in any way they wanted.
“Music at the Intersections” is the subject of World Music Day 2021. The event’s other name is “Make Music Day,” which emphasises the importance of fostering one’s enthusiasm for music and freely sharing music with others.
it’s noted for inspiring aspiring, young, and established artists to perform. World Music Day is observed in over 120 countries, with free public concerts held in parks, stadiums, and other public spaces.
