World Music Day or Fête de la Musique is being celebrated today.

Celebrating World Music Day, Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Guwahati and Task Force for Music and Arts, Government of Nagaland is bringing live on Facebook “One NE concert” at 8 PM this evening, featuring some of the biggest names of the Northeast region.

They are Soulmate from Meghalaya, Girish Pradhan from Sikkim, Joi Barua from Assam, Lenzing Doming of Arunachal Pradesh, Henry Varte from Mizoram, Noune Khate from Nagaland, Mangka from Manipur, and Borkhung Hrangkhawl from Tripura.
