Indian music masters join refugee players, in wishing UN a happy birthday

25 October 2018
 
Wednesday marked the 73rd birthday of the UN’s founding document, known as the UN Charter - a set of principles that captures the dreams and hopes of the nations of the world, emerging from the Second World War.  
 

The anniversary is celebrated as “United Nations Day”, and every year, in the name of peace and our common humanity, a concert takes place in the UN’s General Assembly’s hall, in New York. 

Yasmina Guerda from UN News was there and met some of the performers taking part.
