RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Over the weekend, players traveled from all over French Polynesia to Tahiti, aiming to set a record. Even the country's president played. The Polynesian group says they harmonized for a full five minutes, which would crush the Guinness record by more than 2000 ukuleles. It's MORNING EDITION.
