Overview

This programme is organised in co-operation with Abu Dhabi Police GHQ to showcase military musical instruments and to introduce bagpipes, one of the oldest instruments used by the Trucial Scouts at Al Jahili Fort.

These instruments were modified to serve as part of official protocol and in the Trucial Scout’s ceremonies to honour visiting royalty, presidents and dignitaries.

A memo was issued to provide funds and musical instruments to the Trucial Scouts to establish the military band.

Since opening its gates in 2008, Al Jahili Fort has been a cultural the focal point of activities associated with philosophy and heritage of Abu Dhabi in the Garden City. Al Jahili is one of the largest forts in the UAE and was built in the 1890s on orders from Zayed The First as the home to members of the Al Nahyan ruling family.
