June 2017 Playlist

Did you know on June 21st it’s World Music Day? The event is also know as Fête de la Musique and was originated in France in 1982. Since then the idea has spread across the world but with the simple principal that all concerts and events are free and accessible to the public. Sounds Great!

In celebration of this we thought we would collate a world music playlist. Every song is an artist from a different country. Do you thing you can name them all? The answers are below.
