Actu : WORLD MUSIC DAY! You have to register to see pics in high res.

It is a real tradition : on June 21th, let's celebrate music - all types of music !

Inspired by an idea from American musician Joel Cohen, the first "Fête de la musique" took place in Paris in 1982. It has become a worldwide celebration over years, with over 32 countries setting up their own Music Day.

"Fête de la musique" usually gives opportunity to listen amateur and various musicians performing in the streets, while many free concerts are organized in special venues.

In Phnom Penh, you obviously won't come across a new band on every street corner. But it doesn't mean that you won't be able to listen, enjoy and celebrate music !
