Alliance Française Hyderabad announce yet another celebration of World Music Day 2019, on Sunday 23rd June, at more than 14 venues with more than 200 participants.

Though the World Music Day falls on June 21st world over, at Hyderabad we celebrate on the Sunday following it, making it possible to the general public to enjoy the day of musical celebration. Even the professional musicians play free of cost, thus joining the celebrations, and the people get to enjoy it for free.

The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21 June. On Music Day the citizens of a city or country are allowed and urged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public spaces and parks. Free concerts are also organised, where musicians play for fun and not for payment.

The first all-day musical celebration on the day of the summer solstice was originated by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, and by Maurice Fleuret, and was first celebrated in Paris in 1982.

The theme was "the music everywhere and the concert nowhere". When he discovered, in a 1982 study on the cultural habits of the French, that five million people, one young person out of two, played a musical instrument, he began to dream of a way to bring people out on the streets. It first took place in 1982 in Paris as the Fête de la Musique.

Ever since, the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries, including China, India, Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia, Australia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, the United States, the UK, and Japan.Fête de la Musique's purpose is to promote music.
