May 03, Kathmandu: Nepali Singer Raju Lama has performed a concert at an altitude of 6,574 meters at Mt Everest to spread the message about the effects of climate change.
After reaching between Camp 2 & 3 of Everest, Lama sang popular songs by the Mongolian Heart Band.
Raju said the concert was to convey the message that the crisis of climate change has melted mountains and glaciers, endangered the lives and culture of the people living in the mountain areas, and brought natural disasters like floods and landslides.
This concert by Raju is also the highest altitude musical program. Earlier, British singer Oz Beldon had set a Guinness World Record for the concert on May 16, 2012, at an altitude of 6,476 meters in Mera Peak. Along with this concert of Mongolian Heart, the previous record of British singers has also been broken.
“For me, the record is secondary. The main thing is that I have given a concert to convey the message against the climate crisis, “Raju told from the Everest Base Camp.
Raju is currently on a mission to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
