Out to beat the record

DRUMMERS from 77 nations gathered in Stirling last Friday (March 15) to set a new world record for the most nationalities in a drum circle.

Stirling council hosted the event at Mirrabooka Town Square as part of Harmony Week, and the global batterie smashed the previous 2018 Canadian record of 61 nationalities.

• Stirling mayor Mark Irwin, CEO Stuart Jardine and Paul Osei Kofi in the midst of the record breaking.

Stirling council CEO Stuart Jardine said “the City of Stirling is one of the most multicultural local governments in Australia and not only do we value our diverse community, we want to celebrate it.

“Seeing so many people from so many different backgrounds come together to achieve a common goal really epitomises the spirit of Harmony Week.

• Drummers gather to set the record.

“I can’t think of a better way to highlight our cultural diversity and showcase our city and community to the world.”

Stirling mayor Mark Irwin said “I was absolutely blown away by the community spirit and the way the participants banded together to achieve this amazing feat”.

• Brian Sobel from Guinness World Records officiated the attempt.
