Ukulele Players Set Record for Largest Ensemble
More than 2,000 ukulele players recently gathered in Yokohama, Japan to trump the previous world record set in Sweden for “largest ukulele ensemble.”
The group were watched by Guinness World Records officials, AFP news agency said, and played a song called, “Aloha Mahalo A Hui Ho,” written by a Hawaiian-born former sumo wrestler. They set the record during Japan’s “Ukulele Picnic Week.”
The previous record was set in August 2011 by 1,547 Swedes in Helsingborg.
