Drumming up a storm

Stirling mayor Mark Irwin and members of African bands Akwaaba and Bella Ndayikeze will be hoping to set a new drumming world record on Harmony Day.

The city council wants to try and get more than 61 nationalities playing in a drum circle, which would break the record set by a not-for-profit organisation in Canada last July.

“We’re lucky in Stirling because we are one of the most multicultural local governments in Australia, so I am positive we have a really good chance of breaking this record,” Cr Irwin said.

The attempt will take place on Friday March 15, between 9am and 11am, at The Square Mirrabooka.
