International Music Day or World Music Day is observed on October 1 annually to celebrate the beauty of music. It is to promote global harmony through the music with special focus on organising musical events, radio and television programs and press recordings. The aim is to build up an environment more conducive and hospitable to music. It also highlights the need to fight against sound pollution. International Music Council which organised the day, proposes that each country should maintain a few moments of silence on the International Music Day, and use that silence to listen to music played out in main city squares. World Music Day 2020 Wishes & HD Images: WhatsApp Stickers, GIF Greetings, Facebook Messages & SMS to Celebrate Fête de la Musique.
