World Music Day
Today is World Music Day, wouldn't you know. It was conceived by a Frenchman, Maurice Fleuret, in 1982 but is better known as Fete de la Musique. Apparently it's now celebrated every 21st June in around 400 cities in 100 countries. I knew of it in Bangkok... and it now seems to have reached Beijing. French and Chinese musicians will play in around 30 miscellaneous venues tonight for free - they're always free.
