The Education Tree organized World Music Day as an initiative to recognize and celebrate the long standing tradition of music by hosting a musical extravaganza at Select Citywalk Mall, Saket, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today. The day, marked as ‘Fête de la Musique’, was unequivocally a fun-filled fiesta with the single purpose of revelling in the music to highlight its importance. Music is enjoyed by all regardless of taste; it fosters diversity, cuts across boundaries and unites people. Therefore World Music Day provides the perfect backdrop to promote this.
The Education Tree united a conglomeration of different genres by bringing together more than 150 musicians and dancers. The festivities witnessed spontaneous performances, sing-alongs, choruses, ad-lib acapellas, danceshowcases. Impromptu musicmobs and flashmobs also added to the spur-of-the-moment atmosphere of the proceedings. Music styles like beatboxing, qawalli, acoustic etc were highlighted too. Moreover, Delhi Drum Circle also joined in for a very special jam session. The random, festive and lively ethos of the celebrations thus ranged, championed and celebrated music. Casual shoppers and people out for an evening outing joined in the merriment, witnessed and took part in the celebrations.
The Education Tree was motivated by its commitment to transcend the boundaries of education, because they truly believe that all artistic and non-scholastic pursuits like music, theatre, and dance should be promoted and encouraged, and not just academics. They also hope that in due time the event will touch more and more people and help in celebrating the unique status of music. Having already had successful campaigns like ‘Jo Mera Hai Mera Hai’, ‘Aaghaaz’ and ‘Book Hour’, The Education Tree wants to observe and honour the universal and culturally significant spirit of music and share this celebratory atmosphere with people everywhere.
