The Nigerian Army Band are currently being lauded on social media after bringing their A-game to the annual Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, an international military event.
The 2019 edition of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo was held on Wednesday, August 7, at the Esplanade Castle in Scotland. It featured series of military tattoos performed by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth, international military bands and artistic performance teams.
Asides playing some Nigerian tunes, the Nigerian Army Band embedded a cultural dance which featured prominent Nigerian ethnic groups, in their performance at the event. The outing is said to be Nigeria’s first and certainly won’t be the last.
The band’s commander, Mukhtar Daroda in an exchange with a Facebook user wrote;
