Sri Dasmesh at the World Pipe Band Championship 2015
The Sri Dasmesh Pipe Band will make history by being the first Pipe Band from Malaysia to visit Scotland. This will also be the first time a Sikh Pipe Band will attend and compete in the World Pipe Band Championships ever since the inception of the world championships in 1930.
The first Sikh Pipe Band was established probably around 1856 when the 45th Rattray Regiment was established in Punjab. Since then, Sikh Pipe bands were part of the many Sikh Regiments that were established under the British Empire.
We continue this tradition and continue to honor all the Sikhs Soldiers and freedom fighters that fought for a free world in many wars including the two great world wars.
