In 1982, Jack Lang and his staff at the Ministry of Culture, France dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners and parks, rooftops and gardens, store fronts and mountaintops.

The festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in morethan 120 countries, including Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia, Lebanon, Ivory Coast, Australia, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, and Japan.

In the United States, Make Music is celebrated in over 40 spearheads the events, sponsored by NAMM Foundation. In Africa, over 50 cities celebrate Make Music including Cote d'ivoire: Abidjan, Benin: Cotonou, Burkina Faso: Ouagadougou and Togo: Lome.
