The global phenomenon known as Fête de la Musique (“Music Festival”) is an all-day musical celebration that originated in France in 1981. A brainchild of the French Ministry of Culture, the occasion which is also known as “Make Music Day” (as Faites de la Musique is a homophone of the festival that translates to “make music”) was originally a celebration on the days of the solstice.
This annual music festivity is now celebrated in over 700 cities in 120 countries around the world, including Kuala Lumpur and Penang here in Malaysia. The festival carries out two objectives to promote music: to encourage amateur and professional musicians to perform in the streets, and to make all genres of music accessible to the public (with the encouragement that concerts are free)
With over 150 concerts and music festivals to his name, French pop-alternative singer Charles-Baptiste will be in KL for two performances that are both open to members of the public: enjoy a “French Classics DJ Set with a view” where he will spin a 100% francophone DJ set featuring his selection of new and old French music at the trendy rooftop of Mai Bar at Aloft Hotel, in KL Sentral area.
