This is in gratitude for all the love and support they have shared with us towards music, and we hope they have a wonderful time!”
Palash Sen, the founding member of Euphoria said, “World Music day is one of the most important celebrations of the year. Just like we celebrate everything else in our lives, music needs to be given the utmost importance as well. We have always been an arts and culture country, and to see the so-called ‘business’ affect it to such an extent breaks my heart. This day, we celebrate the purity and the healing powers of this beautiful art form. I still believe that music can change the world. We are looking forward to releasing and playing our new song MAIN HOON on this occasion. I feel inspired by the efforts that Hard Rock Cafe and Artist Aloud put in every year to make this day a landmark celebration.”
