World Music Day 2022: Why do we celebrate World Music Day?

More than 120 countries celebrate World Music Day. And to celebrate it, there are free concerts in parks, stadiums and public wakes. Most of the songs are related to lovers and education.

As most people know, World Music Day is celebrated all over the world on the 21st of June. If it is celebrated all over the world, then its interest among the people is also high. And this day is a day to encourage and excite the youth and music lovers. Any music lover can play any musical instrument for their enjoyment and comfort.

But there is also a bad thing as we know that the cases of covid 19 are increasing all over the world, so maybe this time World Music Day will have to be made by staying at home instead of with much fanfare. The same happened last year in 2021 as well. And maybe this time too the same is likely.

History of World Music Day

The first World Music Day was celebrated at the 1982 Summer Solstice in France. When the former French Minister of Arts and Culture, Jack Lange along with Maurice Fleuret started the “Fte de la Musique” in Paris.
