World Music Day, also known as Make Music Day, is celebrated every year around the globe on June 21st. This event is organised to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to come together and experience the power and joy of music.
History and significance
The birth of the world music day dates back to 1982. Maurice Fleuret, the then Director of Music and Dance at the French Ministry of Culture, decided to start the Music day to bring people out on the street. World Music Day encourages us to embrace the melodies that surround us and to celebrate the music within ourselves. By appreciating and engaging with diverse musical traditions, we cultivate a more harmonious and interconnected global community.
In the end, World Music Day reminds us that music has the power to transcend boundaries, unite souls, and create moments of pure bliss. Let the rhythm guide you, the melodies inspire you, and the harmonies connect you.
