All you need to know about World Music Day

World Music Day is an annual music celebration that takes place globally on the 21st of June, every year. It celebrates music in all its forms, and its powerful impact on the human spirit. It is different from a typical music event or festival.

Also known as Fete de la Musique, it began in France in 1982. French Minister of Culture Jack Lang conceived the idea in 1981. Since then the day has been celebrated every year as the World Music Day.

As per another theory, American musician Joel Cohen in France, in 1976, proposed an all-night music celebration to mark the beginning of the summer solstice and since then the entire world celebrates World Music Day on June 21.

It is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.

It is free and open to the public.

In Manipur, the groups of artists and musicians have been organizing the celebration of World Music Day every year in Imphal by crowd funding.
