TANZANIA: The Guinness World Record has declared 5895 m (19340.55 ft) registered by an Irish; Siobhan Brady on Mount Kilimanjaro on 27 July 2023 was the highest altitude harp performance in history.
Siobhan performed this record to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.
Her performance becomes the second in history after DJ Joozey reaching it from Africa’s rooftop.
The accomplished harpist arrived in Tanzania on July 27, accompanied by 19 fellow musicians, ready to break the world record by entertaining the world at the top of Mt Kilimanjaro.
She broke 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 24-year-old musician from Co Limerick reached the 5,895-metre summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in July early in the morning and performed a 20-minute concert with fellows including Ed Sheeran’s Little Bird in a Tanzanian jig.
