India Strategic - - CONTENTS -

NEW DELHI. The Royal Ed­in­burgh Mil­i­tary Tat­too is an in­ter­na­tional event of mil­i­tary mu­sic per­for­mance un­der­taken by the Armed Forces. In fact, the Royal Ed in­burgh Mil­i­tary Tat­too is the largest tat­too per­formed in the world in the ma­jes­tic, sprawl­ing stretch of Ed­in­burgh Cas­tle Es­planade, Scot­land.

The in­vi­ta­tion to the In­dian Navy Band to par­tic­i­pate and per­form in this pres­ti­gious event sched­uled from 01 to 26 Aug 17 is in­deed a mat­ter of pride and be­fit­ting recog­ni­tion of the pro­fes­sional prow­ess of the Naval band. The par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Naval Band would fur­ther ce­ment the ties be­tween the two coun­tries, more so, when the Govt of In­dia and UK have an­nounced 2017 as the In­dia- UK Year of Cul­ture to cel­e­brate cul­tural ties and the 70th year of In­dian in­de­pen­dence.

The In­dian Navy Band has been prac­tic­ing hard in the last few months to fur­ther hone their skills to cap­ture the hearts and minds of the mu­sic en­thu­si­asts in this in­ter­na­tional event. The band com­pris­ing of 01 of­fi­cer and 65 mu­si­cian sailors would per­form un­der the lead­er­ship of Com­man­der Vi­jay Charles D’Cruz, Di­rec­tor of Mu­sic ( Navy) who would be the Prin­ci­pal Con­duc­tor dur­ing the event. The In­dian Navy band was sched­uled to de­part for Lon­don from Mum­bai on 30 Jul 17.

The Royal Ed­in­burgh Mil­i­tary Tat­too is well renowned event with over 50 bands par­tic­i­pat­ing, and nearly 8500 vis­i­tors at­tend­ing the daily per­for­mances. A to­tal au­di­ence of nearly 2.5 lakh at­tends the event over the pe­riod of 26 days. Apart from In­dia, bands from coun­tries like Aus­tralia, France, Ger­many, Ja­pan, etc, would also be per­form­ing at the tat­too this year.
