In May 2012 members of Grooveschool took part in Music4Children's attempt at the Worlds Highest Gig. Following 3 weeks of trekking and cross-cultural musical experiences with local inhabitants, not long after dawn on the 16th May the team successfully summited Mera Peak and performed a concert. With the backdrop of five of the Worlds 8,000 metre high peaks the crew were lucky with the window of good weather allowing them the opportunity to go for it.
3 solo acoustic acts, a Sherpa boy band, a DJ set and a freestyle rap accompanied with some beats took the time of the concert to well over 45 minutes.
The funds raised from the trek helped to complete the building of the charity's long standing project just outside of Kathmandu. A home that now houses 18 orphans, kept safe, fed and educated.
We will forever thank all those who supported us and made it happen.
