Organisers in call for Dhol players for world record attempt
The Birmingham City Council backed World 501 Dholis International Fundraiser, to be held on Saturday May 2, aims to smash the current world record for the number of Dhol drummers playing at the same time.
Participants in the Centenary Square event will play a five minute routine as organiser, the King of Dhol, Gurcharan Mall, aims to raise over £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
“It would be great for the organisers to break this world record here in Birmingham and I’d love to see members of every community taking part.”
The current Guinness World Record of 314 Dhol players was set at Oldbury Council House, Sandwell in July 1999.
“I want to see every community in the city represented as we drum our way into the record books.”
Registration for the event costs £5. So if you would like to sign up for the world record attempt, call Gurcharan Mall on 07721 400 422 or log onto www.world501dholis.com
