The World Music Day is celebrated annually on June 21 as musicians and music lovers around the world enjoy the day in their own way. Music plays a crucial role in everyone’s life. There are many different types, but all remains part of the original definition.
Music is the expression of one’s soul and emotions. World music day keeps a thought afresh in the minds of the public that ‘Creativity Drives a Nation’.
It’s hard to imagine the world without music. If we dig into the history of music, one question comes in our way is where did music, at its core, first come from? It’s a puzzling question that may not have a definitive answer. According to Wikipedia, the idea of the World Music Day was conceptualised first in France in 1976 by American musician Joel Cohen who proposed an all-night music celebration to mark the beginning of the summer solstice. However, Richard Parncutt, an Australian-born professor of systematic musicology, endorsed the idea that music originally spawned from “mothers”- the playful voices of mothers adopt when speaking to infants and toddlers.
As per sources, 21st June is the only day in history of United States of America (USA) where musicians are at liberty to play music to high heavens, play music to disturb their neighbourhood or draw people’s attention, even against their will. If you are a music lover, create custom video greetings with back ground music, welcoming your family & friends to celebrate this year’s world music day.
Let’s greet and salute all those great personalities for mesmerising the whole world with their magic (music).
