La Fête de la Musique, a. k. a. World Music Day, is a music festival on which the world celebrates the magical gift of music. The slogan of the event is “Faites de la musique!” (Make music) and many free concerts are organized around the city of Paris, making music accessible to the public. This year’s theme is Pop! So, get ready to pop!
In our attempt to “seize the day” and as a prep-up for the big event tonight, we made a special selection of classical old songs about Paris for you. Enjoy!
