Tel Aviv residents and Israelis from outside the city will mark the longest day of the year - June 21- with music. As part of the Voila! project celebrating Israeli-French relations, Fete de la Musique will take stage throughout the city. Fete de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, traditionally takes place in France on June 21, which in most years is the summer solstice. The event, which first took place in 1982, has spread over the years to Britain, China, Morocco and now Israel. Fete de la Musique's seeks to promote amateur musicians, who are encouraged to perform in the streets, and to make all genres of music available to the public at large. French artists scheduled to perform this year in Tel Aviv include oriental-electro musician Orange Blossom, flamenco-jazz guitarist Kiko Ruiz, and African pop singer Manou Gallo. Other musical styles incorporated in the festival will include jazz, rock, world and Mizrahi music. The festival will take place throughout the streets of Tel Aviv, with five main stages set up in Jaffa's Old City, in the Suzanne Dellal Center courtyard, in the Performing Arts Center courtyard just outside the Tel Aviv Museum, and in front of the Cinematheque. All concerts will be free of charge.
