Ho, Dasmesh!

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The call that activates the Sikh Pipe and Drum band. The Sikhs were brought to Malaya by The British as soldiers and law enforcement officers. They were renown for their military skills, courage, and scrupulous honesty. When Great Britain granted The Malay states their independence, they remained to be assimilated into the multi-ethnic society. Becoming a federation, the country was renamed Malaysia, retaining much of the institutions the colonists established.

I remember seeing these (well, not these ones) at the Menin Gate, Ypres, Belgium a few years ago on Armistice Day. Their bagpipes sounded so different to the Scottish Pipers that they had to be seperated by quite a distance.
