Google doodles for June 21st

21 Jun

Google celebrates today the birthday of famous Egyptian singer Abdel Halim Hafez. He had a huge impact on Arabic music, and I was delightfully surprised to know he was born on the 21st of June, the fête de la musique day (or world music day).

On another hand, Google France displayed a different doodle dedicated to the summer solstice. The doodle is designed by famous Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, who is known for his colorfully whimsical and lively designs. Very fitting for the first day of summer!
