Universal Music Day
The history of music dates back to human history. Historians believe music predated the development of language in human culture. Even infants can make sounds that resemble singing and it happens much earlier than when they are able develop language skills.
Music is a part of nature that is universal. Birds sing songs from trees, sometimes in the morning, and sometimes in the evening. The musical sounds of humpback whales are accompanied by syntax. Mice can even sing at supersonic volumes. The Pacific tree frogs also sing about the weather and to mark their territory.
Universal Music Day was founded in 2007 by Susan Patricia Golden as a worldwide celebration of the freedom and expression of music. Golden believes music is the greatest gift humans can give to themselves. She considers herself a “reconstruction musician”, meaning that music allows people to regain their freedom to express themselves as they did when they were children.
