Basel Tattoo 2017 | feel the beat

Feel the beat, the Basel Tattoo 2017 has more than 1000 participants from all over the world.
Feel the Beat is a musical world tour and the different formations guide the audience through their countries from Switzerland, to Italy, Russia, America, New Zealand and many more in an entertaining, touching and breathtaking way.

The Igor Moiseyev State Academic Ensemble from Russia presented us their incredible choreography, it is only the second time ever they dance somewhere else than on their usual stage and it was absolutely breathtaking,

The Musique des Sapeurs-Pompiers de Paris from France usually play at ceremonies of the firefighters and other military celebrations, their show is musically on a very high level, they played many modern songs and it was very catchy, it is diverse and very entertaining.

The Massed Pipes and Drums is a formation consisting of more than 200 bagpipers and drummers from groups from all over the world, their playing was incredibly impressive and very powerful.

The band of recruits from the Swiss army presented us a fantastic show with wonderful music that made us laugh and brought a certain "Swissness" to the show.

It was once again wonderful to see the courtyard of the Kaserne (barrack) in Basel get turned into a scene of formations from all four continents, with amazing choreographies, breathtaking music and a unity of people from all over the world.
