The World’s Largest International Military Music Festival Wows Moscow

Military music was originally a way of inspiring armies on the battlefield and accompanying marches and parades. Today, military music plays an important role during military ceremonies and national commemorations.

Military bands from across the world arrived to Moscow to take part in the International Military Music Festival “Spasskaya Tower-2016” which kicked off on August 28.
