The Bodo band is hard at practice in the national capital for sometime now for their show during the Republic Day Parade. The band formed in 2016, consist 45 cadets. The band got recognition for the first time at the 2016 State Republic Day celebrations, where they managed to impress CM Sarbananda Sonowal.
