Music plays an important role in framing a society; it has the power to change the world. The sound can melt your heart, raise your spirits and stay forever in your mind. It is a medium that allows us to feel all possible emotions in our lives. That is why music is always referred to as a “shorthand of emotions”. This powerful medium has an immense role in every individual’s life. Thus it is vital to celebrate music and the musician who renders it. It is also a day for all music fans to celebrate. Music day is observed on the 21st of June every year. Let’s see more about the history of this event and the theme of the 2022 music day.
