Tongan Royal Corps of Musicians

Tongan Royal Corps of MusiciansFrom Tonga

Big, bold and brassy!

There's no other military band quite like this one! Tonga's Royal Corps of Musicians not only play superbly, they dance as well! With their white helmets, and their pressed and polished uniforms contrasting deliciously with the decorative costumes of the traditional dancers who accompany them, this 40 strong ensemble never fails to delight. The band's infectious spirit infuses its brilliant brass music, which zigzags merrily from Handel to Glen Miller, from pacific island music to Elvis Presley. A tale of the South Pacific to add sparkle to the soul!
