Instagram launches three new features for music enthusiasts in India
World Music Day is celebrated across the globe to enable artists and musicians to enthrall fans and crowds with their rhythm, creativity and imagination. For every person you might come across, music has a different connotation and sense of purpose – for some it might be a way to escape from reality, for others it could be a way to flow in between time, for some it might be the way to elevate mood, or unlock potential. Each of us view, and interact with music in unique and somewhat profound ways – while also being tethered in a very personal and intimate manner.
