World Music Day 2018: Where Words Fail, Music Speaks Music expresses that which cannot be said, and on which it is impossible to be silent

WORLD Music Day or Fete De La Musique was first celebrated in Paris in 1982 and since then every year June 21 is celebrated as a day to honour the role music plays in our lives.

In the words of the French poet Victor Hugo, “music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”

Music has been with mankind ever since there’s been sound and speech, even before there was a language to communicate.

Today, the music industry is one of the largest industries of the world, and so many of us admittedly grow up idolising musical talents.

The best way to celebrate music day?

Listen to your old favorites, brush up on nostalgic childhood songs you grew up listening to or songs reminiscent of a bitter-sweet time in your life.

You could also celebrate the musical diversity that exists today by listening to new songs you’ve never heard before.
