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 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.
