The Global Music Academy joins hands with the world, celebrating "rhythm" which is one of the foremost musical expressions of the humanity. Percussion beats and rhythmical forms on this very special day played and sung in unison with the entire world “ Rhythm connects ”. The GMA warmly invites you, your family and friends to clap and sing with us against prejudices and dance together for unity, peace and harmony.

The day of events consists of workshops in the afternoon on Drums, Korean Percussion (Changgo), Tabla and Mirdangam (North and South Indian classical percussions). The evening concerts will feature masterly drumming by Diego Piñera, a student presentation and Manickam Yogeswaran on South Indian percussion instruments, exploring a new dialogue with DJ Tó on modern digital beats.
