WORLD MUSIC DAY | FÊTE DE LA MUSIQUE – Concerts, Performances, Workshops

Since its creation by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in 1982, the “Fête de la Musique” became the largest international live music event in the world and now gathers 450 cities in more than 120 countries.

Celebrated every 21st of June, the World Music Day is a grand and popular affair,  free and open to all musicians, whether amateur or professional. It brings  ‘live’ music ‘alive’  in all its diversity and its myriad genres. It aims at bringing universal entertainment to the young and not so young, to penetrate every strata of society …

This year, Alliance Française de Bombay along with Natural Streets for Performing Arts (NSPA), Furtados School of Music and Blue Frog brings you three days of music.

From the 18th to the 21th of June , let’s all celebrate together World Music Day through workshops, screenings, performances and concerts !

As well as the non-profit spirit of the event, the participation to the workshops & concerts are all free of charges for our students & members.
