How Did World Music Day Celebration Start?
The foundation of World Music Day is based in France. Its founder is Jack Lang and Maurice. The very first World Music Day was celebrated in Paris, France in the year 1982. The story of World Music Day goes back to October 1981. In that year Jack Lang, Minister of Culture of France had appointed Maurice Fleuret as the Director of Music and Dance.
These two planned and convinced the people to bring musicians on the streets together. The main idea behind the plan was to bring all the musicians both professional and amateurs on the street to play together. So, on 21st June 1982, the first Fete de la Musique was celebrated in Paris. Thousands of citizens came together across France on the streets to play.
This event became very popular around the globe. And it was adopted by 120 countries which included India also. On this day musicians come on the street and play their instruments in parks, streets, stadiums all for free. There are also free concerts which are organized by the musicians only for the purpose of entertainment.
