The origin of World Music Day (Fete de la Musique) began in 1982 in France thanks to the then French Minister of Culture Jack Lang. World Music Day has been celebrated on 21 June every year since then and Croatia has taken on the tradition of celebrating it.

Tomorrow (Thurs) in the Dalmatian city of Split, at ten locations from morning till night there will be perfromances by soloists and ensembles of all kinds.

The significant feature of the celebration of music and how it contains all the joys of life, spiritual wealth, nobility and culture, this year will also be taken care of by the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, who instead of playing their traditional Zagreb concert, will go to the inland Dalmatian town of Drnis to perform, with a concert at 9pm on Drnis's main square, writes daily newspaper Vecernji list.
