World Music Day, a festival initiated in France, is now a worldwide celebration. Its idea is to bring music to streets, to make it accessible for everyone, as well as to encourage young bands and musicians to find their audience. In Hyderabad, the music festival is organized every year by Alliance Française Hydrabad, Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, Hyderabad Western Music Foundation and Hyderabad Public School. It provides a common platform for all musicians: young and old, amateurs and professionals alike to perform for the twin cities, reflecting the whole palette of music styles and genres: Indian modern and traditional, western classical, rock or fusion.
