25 Drummers Drumming

One of the most important aspects of any piece of music is the beat. All music needs a beat of some kind whether it is heard in the performers’ heads or given from a conductor, a percusssion section or from a drummer. However, sometimes drummers “do their own thing” together and with much practice achieve amazing results. Check out the spectacular Top Secret Drum Corps below!

 

About Top Secret Drum Corps

Top Secret Drum Corps is a precision drum corps based in Basel, Switzerland. It comprises 25 drummers and colorguard members. The corps became famous for its demanding six-minute routine performed at the Edinburgh Tattoo in 2003, thus becoming one of the first non-military, non-British Commonwealth acts to perform on the Esplanade at Edinburgh Castle. Since its success in 2003, Top Secret was invited to return to Edinburgh in 2006, 2009 and again in 2012. Under the leadership of Erik Julliard, the band is also responsible for the founding of the Basel Tattoo, a military tattoo show similar to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, now held annually in Basel.
