FThe Duke of Edinburgh Band, later renamed the Banda Vittoriosana San Lawrenz in 1976, is pictured here. Local bands play a major role in Maltese festivals and this one, located in Vittoriosa was led by Giovanni Giumarra (center, second row). Giumarra was the father of Francesca Muliett who later emigrated to Detroit. He remained a Maestro di Musica in Malta and never migrated himself.
