Lieutenant Colonel Rashid Khasef Obaid Al Wahshi, Head of the Abu Dhabi Police Music Department, said “We participate every year at the Sheikh Zayed Festival, as it is one of the most prominent and memorable cultural heritage events in Abu Dhabi and the region in general. 

This particular event bears the name of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which makes that much more special to each and every one of us, in addition to the fact that we find the Festival a great platform for the military music bands to present some of the authentic legacy and heritage of our beloved country.”

He added that the performers and participants, including himself, enjoy the spectacular atmosphere of the Festival, as it allows them to perform many styles of heritage military music for visitors and guests who enjoy the daily performances. He explained that the Police Music Band includes bagpipes, brass and a woodwind. They play many famous pieces that reflect the Emirati heritage along with popular global music.

Lieutenant Colonel Al Wahshi explained that the Abu Dhabi Police Music Band was the first military music band in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the UAE, having been founded in 1963 and making its debut later that year. 

He added that many developments have taken place in the number of musicians, instrumentalists, official and civilian participation, and the numbers of military marches as well, along with the introduction of a string quartet, expanding both the quality and repertoire of the music, presented to include world famous symphonies.

Lieutenant Colonel Al Wahshi thanked the Higher Organizing Committee of the Sheikh Zayed Festival for the opportunity to participate each year and create the special heritage music shows featured daily alongside the various other events of the Festival. He also praised the great development the Festival is witnessing every year in terms of events, designs, decorations and pavilions, as well as the art and cultural performances that bring together all countries of the world on a single platform.
