The World Music Day celebrations in Nairobi, Kenya are all set for next Wednesday, 21st June at the Alliance Française gardens.
From 5pm onwards, the Alliance Française garden stage will be abuzz with the sound of music, bringing together musicians and music lovers through the universal language of melody and rhythm. This year, on stage will be talented young musicians followed by Tetu Shani, Abaki Simba and Suraj.
The music revolution that originated in France in 1982 at the behest of the French Ministry of Culture, ‘La Fête de la Musique’, popularly known as World Music Day, was initiated and is held annually on 21st June marking the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. The tradition is now celebrated in more than 700 cities around the world with free musical performances.
