Music Freedom Day takes place worldwide on 3 March

Music Freedom Day is an annual event to advocate freedom of expression for musicians worldwide, launched by Freemuse four years ago. It takes place on 3 March. Musicians and activists in Mumbai, Cairo, Kabul, Amman, The Hague, Paris and New York are among those planning to organise Music Freedom Day events, along with the release of the Freemuse CD "Listen to the banned". In many countries, national broadcasters will produce and present programmes on music censorship and freedom of expression.

In New York, "The Impossible Music Sessions" is an event that will connect censored artists from around the world with artists in New York, who learn and perform their music live at a Brooklyn performance and art space. The first session on 3 March showcases the Brooklyn-based group Cruel Black Dove playing a tribute to the music of the illegal Iranian band The Plastic Wave, who will appear remotely from Tehran.
