It is available in many different languages. The World Music Day celebrates the Music in all its forms, and the impact it has on the world and the human spirit is incredible.
“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” – Bob Marley
History Of World Music Day
Music has existed since as long as the humanity has found its voice, and quite possibly before. The idea of World Music Day was conceptualised first in France in 1976 by the American Musician Joel Cohen who has proposed an all-night music celebration to make this world more joyful. The idea was taken up by the French Music and Dance director Maurice Fleuret for Minister of Culture Jack Lang in 1981. It first took place in 1982 in the Paris. From there the festival has become an international phenomenon, which is celebrated on the same day in more than 460 cities in 110 countries which includes Italy, Germany Syria, Egypt, Australia, Morocco, Congo, Vietnam, Cameroon, Colombia, Fiji, Nepal, Chile and Japan. Every culture has it’s own form of music, as unique and distinct of its area as the language and food. In the western world, we are familiar with the scale which is known as the diatonic scale. It should be familiar to anyone who took the music classes or choir in the school. But this is not the only music scale or not even the first music scale. It is the day on which the world celebrates the magical gift of the music.
On this day the amateur and the professional musicians are encouraged to perform the music in the streets. Many independent organisations are organised to make all the genres of music accessible to the public. Two of the caveats were approved by the official Fete de la Musique organisation in Paris. All other concerts should be free to the public, and the performers donate their time for free, This is the real thing which is happening in cities for now as well. Since there was more noise in the public performance, later France forbade them to install the audio hardware in the street.

A Long and Winding Road: How One Night’s Drive Turned Eileen Carey into a Pop-Country Phenom
By Matthew Kayser
As the late twenty-something wife and mother of two daughters drove home from yet another exhausting 15-hour shift, something snapped within Eileen Carey. After spending years booking entertainment for a Los Angeles hotel, Carey realized that it was now her turn to write, sing, and perform the songs she loved.
Yes, she had been the consummate family woman, fully devoted to her kids and her husband.
And yes, she knew that most professional artists launch their careers when they’re young. Or at least younger.
But the California-based Carey has a habit of trusting her heart. And her heart was quite emphatic in insisting that now was the time Country to pursue her lifelong dream of a career in music.
That now was the time to prove to her daughters that any woman - no matter her age or her social status - can achieve whatever it is she wants.
Besides, Carey thought, if not now, when?
And with this realization, Carey’s most unlikely and inspiring music career began.
Eileen Carey has always been a lover and a fighter. The chart-topping country pop artist has forged a wildly successful career through both her tenacity and her desire to let love rule. Carey has proven that very good things can come to those who wait - and work.
While Elmore Magazine describes Carey’s sound as “a little bit cosmopolitan, a little bit country,” Nashville Music Guide best explains why Carey and her feel-good blend of pop, rock, and country has connected with fans and critics alike:
“Eileen Carey has emerged over the last few years as both an accomplished storyteller and an appealing stylist. Her songs offer much needed messages of emotional fulfillment and personal empowerment.”
Empowerment is evident in Carey’s long and winding path to being named the New Music Weekly’s AC/Hot AC Breakthrough Artist of 2019 and 2020. And in 2018 was their Country Breakthrough Artist. Now situated alongside household names like Post Malone, Five Seconds of Summer, and the duo of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, Carey has done things her own way and very much on her own timetable.
This includes crashing the low glass ceiling facing women in country music:
“When I was thirty, an A&R guy in Nashville told me, “You’re too old. Go home.” He is now one of my biggest supporters. I don’t believe that anything should hold back talent, effort, and aspiration. Not gender, age, or race.”
Carey credits her urge to push for equality to heroes from multiple spheres of social influence and her desire to positively impact her daughters:
“I am inspired by the huge numbers of women making waves in society, whether it’s in sports, business, or the political arena. I have two daughters, so this is very important to me.”
Fueled by her hunger for equality, her self-belief, and her love for her family, Carey followed her car-ride epiphany with the release of two tracks, one a cover, and one original.
The cover was Carey’s take on Patsy Cline’s hit “Walking After Midnight.” Carey’s rendition of the Cline classic was the winning track in a Nashville radio syndicated fan contest. Carey just so happened to beat out Martina McBride.
Carey’s other track was “That Town,” a nostalgic look back at the songwriter’s youth spent in Ohio. “That Town” soon took off on Adult Contemporary radio.
Carey’s first two songs convinced her that she really did have the goods to succeed in the music industry.
A look at her list of accomplishments since then has proven Carey correct. She’s won an astonishing eighteen music awards in half a decade, including:
• New Music Weekly AC/Hot AC Breakthrough Artist of the Year for 2019 & 2020
• Reverbnation #1 Regional Country-Pop Artist for April 2019
• IMN Fan Favorite Female Country Artist 2020
• Los Angeles Music Awards Crossover Artist for 2018
• New Music Weekly Country Breakthrough Artist for 2018
• Los Angeles Music Awards Country Music Performer of the Year for 2017
• Independent Radio Network Crossover Artist for 2016
Perhaps most indicative of her magical rise is the who’s-who of legends with whom Carey has shared a stage, including Rita Coolidge, Wilson Phillips, Don McLean, Jefferson Starship, Martha Davis, Johnny Rivers, Peter Noone, Nelson, and Tal Bachman.
Following in the footsteps of what The Hype Magazine calls a “long line of radio hits,” Carey’s recent single “Keep Your Love to Yourself” is a rally cry for women who find themselves in abusive relationships. The song’s message is loud and clear: every woman deserves a healthy, positive relationship in which they are treated as equals - and anything less simply won’t cut it.
It is this unrestrained tenacity and commitment to positivity that has inspired the songstress to take part in several projects aimed at making Carey and her fans healthier and happier human beings.
Whether it’s promoting physical and mental health via kickboxing and time spent outdoors, caring for animals through her work with FixNation and her family’s nonprofit organization Stray Paws Animal Haven, or providing thoughtful parenting advice on her blog The Music Mom, Carey strives to offer support and encouragement for listeners everywhere:
“I try to give people a different way of thinking about the world and their role in it. I want them to focus on the positive aspects of life. I genuinely believe that very good things will happen for them if they do.”
In addition to positivity, two other words perfectly describe Carey, her music, and her career: passion and persistence. Carey’s endless enthusiasm and determination to see the good in life has produced a career that teaches a valuable lesson: slow and steady may win the race, but genuine and likable earn the winner much applause.
And while she was familiar with applause due to one of her hotel management chores being the booking of the entertainment many years ago, it took a fateful drive home and lots of hard work for Eileen Carey to finally be on the other end of it.
