World Music Day is celebrated annually on June 21 across the globe. The day intends to promote peace and unite people of different nationalities, races, cultures, and ethnicity through music.  Also known as Fete de la Musique, World Music Day celebrates different genres like jazz, rock, classical, folk, traditional, and others.
