Most of the compositions played by military bands were based on Indian tunes. The new composition "Dhola Re Dhola" by Maj Gen K N Bhatt and Maj N Hussain was played in a mesmerising 'Echo'.
While 'The Admiral Insignia' composed by Lt Cdr S K Champion stole the show, the Navy and Air Force bands also performed other enchanting tunes of 'Man of War', 'Evening Breeze' and 'Through the Great Ocean'.
