Music is not something that can be defined by the words of any language. Music is what eternalizes our very existence. Music is what expresses our deepest emotions in diverse rhythms. Music completes our joy in times of ecstasy and comforts our broken hearts in times of distress. Music transcends all tangible and intangible barriers to be eternally ringing in the waves of time. And 21st June is when the whole world comes together for a music day celebration. Here’s everything you need to know about International Music Day.
The Behind Story
Also known as Fête de la Musique, World Music Day is celebrated every year on 21st June. The first time that it was ever celebrated was back in 1982 in France. But, who started it? It is believed that the idea of celebrating music for an entire day was put forward by the then French Minister of Culture, Jack Lange, and a famous composer, Maurice Fleuret. Later, the idea was embraced by people all over the world and this day came to be known as International Music Day.
The Primary Purpose
Music Day originally began to be celebrated to offer free music to anyone and everyone. It also gave amateur musicians a great opportunity to showcase their talents to the world. Music helps us in ways unfathomable. Even scientific studies have confirmed its effects on our psychological state.
The Ritual Of Celebrations
Back in 1982, people celebrated the music day together by coming out on the streets. Since then, the celebrations have evolved each year. Free concerts became an absolute must on this day. People would hold concerts in parks, museums, stations and even on the streets. Fests, fairs, parades, dance parties and feasts became a part of the celebrations.
