Pride of India- Military bands of the Navy and Air Force

Armed forces all over the world have deep-rooted martial music traditions. Martial music is one of the many forms of music particularly composed to create ‘Veer Rasa’. The essential qualities of martial music have been described in great detail by Bharat in his Sanskrit treatise on music titled ‘Natyashastra’. He described music as God’s creation, capable of touching the heart and soul, thus, arousing emotions. Music aided by words and beats becomes a very potent and pertinent medium for rousing emotions.

In olden times, martial music roused and inspired feelings of courage and valour amongst soldiers in the battlefield. The present bands are evolved from such old and venerated traditions of martial music. Even though the military band is ceremonial in its function, it plays an important role in instilling a sense of pride and motivating men to accomplish deeds of excellence, be it in operations, the field of sports or other functions of regimental life.
