Top Secret Drum Corps

While this blog is meant to be for all things Celtic culture and music (specifically piping and pipe bands), every once in a while I think it's okay to diverge just a little bit.

A friend of mine sent me a link to a video a few days ago, and I was pretty stunned when I watched it.  Is it Celtic?  Not so much.  But it does have something in common with pipe bands… Drumming. Really good drumming! If you liked the movie Drumline (and I very much did!), then you'll love seeing the real thing!

For the last three years, the Top Secret Drum Corps, out of Switzerland, has performed at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.  The video is from their 2012 performance.

Chances are that if you regularly follow the news coming out of the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo, you will have already seen this.  But if, like me, you're a Johnny-come-lately playing catch-up, click the link and take a look at this drum corps.

If you have already seen this, then you'll know it's woth watching again. They are amazing!
