Ukulele World Record 2015
On 11 April 2015 more than 4750 people gathered at the first Tahiti ukulele festival in Papeete. Together they strummed and sang Eddie Lund's evergreen " Bora Bora ". The people from the Pacific Ocean archipelago came together to beat the 2014 Guinness World Record of the largest ukulele ensemble. And they made it. Congratulations ! Here's an impression of this unique event: What a great example for the true ukulele spirit. Just imagine the setting if you'd put together the same number of drummers. They certainly had a good time at the world ukulele record 2015. And the party went on afterwards: As you can see in the first few seconds of this video the plague of the " Selfie-Stick " has reached Polynesia. As mentioned before this wasn't the first ukulele world record and it won't be the last. The American uke scene plan a huge playalong on 18 April 2015 in Los Angeles. And what if they break the record ? " Then we bring 10.000 people to the stadium next time. " said the Polynesian culture secretary. Rock on Papeete. Cheers FriendlyFred
