Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Alliance Française de Dhaka celebrated ‘Fête de la Musique 2019’ with a series musical performances at its La Galerie on June 21 in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
‘Fête de la Musique’ is globally known as World Music Day. The event was held from 2:15pm to 10:00pm on that day.
Aiming to integrate through the universal language of melody and rhythm, the ‘Fête de la Musique’ inspires an overture to a participative lyrical voyage by putting forward thousands of free concerts all over the world.
Celebrated on the day of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere, 21 June, the Fête de la musique was initiated in 1982. This is the free ‘Fête,’ open to any participants, non-professional or professional musicians.
‘Fête de la Musique’ brings about a great opportunity to immerse and participate in a musical expedition by offering thousands of free concerts all over the world. Like every year, Alliance Française de Dhaka is organising a number of musical concerts - both solo and group performances.
This event was open for all audience. n
