The London and Bolton branches of Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band were amongst the leading features of this year’s La Grande Parade de Paris on New Year’s Day.
Our fifty pipers and drummers were joined by more than 20 other international groups, including marching bands, cheerleaders, majorettes, concert bands and orchestras, who have been entertaining Parisians and tourists alike with a diverse range of music and performances on the parade and in concerts in Paris, over the New Year week.
The Parade started at Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, and numerous iconic landmarks provided a wonderful backdrop to stage this annual spectacle, at which Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band has often performed to great applause.
