The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo performs at the 2014 Commonwealth Games
A 66-member Indian Navy band has joined the historic Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in the UK for this year's musical event where they will mark the 70th year of India's Independence.
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of military tattoos — performance of music — by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and international military bands and artistic performance teams on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.
It was first staged in 1950 and since then British and international musicians and acts from over 50 countries have entertained audiences. The Indian Band, appearing with an array of colourful dancers, comprises one officer and 65 musician-sailors, performing under the baton of Commander Vijay Charles D'Cruz, Director of Music (Navy) and the principal conductor at the event.
