Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band London, from Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury in Kingsbury Road, performed their fusion of traditional Scottish and Indian tunes at the annual parade yesterday.

The Band of fifty pipers and drummers, all of British Indian origin in Scottish regalia, wowed the cheering crowds with their renditions of traditional piping tunes, such as ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’ and ‘Scotland the Brave’, as well as top Bollywood hits.

With them were members of the temple carrying Lord Swminarayan’s golden chariot.

More than 8,000 entertainers from across the country and abroad performed along the route from Green Park station to Whitehall via Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall and Trafalgar Square.
