World celebrates Music Day on June 21, France takes the lead
World Music Day is also being celebrated on June 21 alongside with the International Day of Yoga.

In France, the country of origin of the observance, it is celebrated with great fervour as "The Fete de la Musique".

Mahesh Shringi, who is a budding musician of Rajasthan, created a music video and shared it with his Facebook friends including me as a reminder of the observance taking place on 21st June.

The day was founded in 1981, with the concept of an all-day musical celebration on the days of the solstice, introduced by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang. The festival later started being celebrated in 120 countries around the world.

In many countries music lovers come out on the streets and both amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform on the streets, under the slogan "make music".

Performers and music lovers organize free concerts to make all genres of music accessible to the public with the performers donating their time for free.
