It’s more music from Africa’s rooftop

AFTER DJ Joozey jammed it from Africa’s rooftop, it’s now the turn of Siobhan Brady to entertain the world at the top of Mt Kilimanjaro.

The Irish is aiming to break a world record by playing a Celtic Harp on Africa’s rooftop.

The accomplished harpist is due to arrive in Tanzania on July 27, accompanied by 19 fellow musicians, ready to break the world record.

Brady is set to break her record of the highest Harp concert, having first achieved it on top of Singla pass on the Himalayas, which is elevated at 4,954 meters (16,253 feet), in 2008.

The mission saw her awarded in January 2020 for the Highest Altitude Harp Performance in aid of Cystic Fibrosis.

In doing so, the project raised 62.2m/-(£20,000) in funds and increased awareness for Cystic Fibrosis, using music and altitude.

Now, Siobhan is planning on breaking her record by bringing her Harp to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in July 2023 in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to set a new world record for the highest harp concert in the Himalayas, and I look forward to setting a new world record for the same again atop Mt. Kilimanjaro,” said the Harpist in her Biography.

Pascale Harvie, the President and General Manager of JustGiving, a global online social platform for giving, said Brady’s upcoming challenge on Mt Kilimanjaro reflects, on every level, the difficulties that people with cystic fibrosis face every day.

“I’m in awe of Siobhan, Caroline, and their team’s commitment to raising vital funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. They are an inspiration to us all,” she explained.

In March this year, DJ Joozey became the first person in the world to play at Uhuru Peak.

The Disc Jockey performed an epic DJ set of 15 minutes at Uhuru peak of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Not only is Mt Kilimanjaro the highest free-standing mountain in the world, but it is also 5,895 metres above sea level.
