US and China army band play at GA

Musical history has been made at the United Nations General Assembly after military bands from the United States and China held their first ever joint concert.

This musical and military exchange between the United States Army Band "Pershing's Own" and the Military Band of the People's Liberation Army of China seeks to foster cooperation and friendship through music.

UN Radio's Beng Poblete-Enriquez has compiled two reports celebrating the collaboration. It features music often played on July 4th, the day when America celebrates its independence.

Duration: 9’59″‘

[the second part of the concert featuring some Chinese music and Verdi's La Traviata can be found on the link below]
