I was stunned at just how out of tune the brass band that played for Obama in Egypt was. It was not just me who felt this way. My friend in Heliopolis thought she was going tone deaf. I can understand if they had trouble with the American National Anthem...but they were just as bad with the Egyptian National Anthem.
I tried to find some footage on YouTube of the whole performance, but all I could find was this one. (I think it is supposed to be a bugle?)
