BRADFORD has broken another world record after almost 1,000 children took part in a mass "Bamboo Tamboo" performance.
Children from 26 schools hammered out beats on the percussion instrument in City Park this morning, when Bradford was one of the cities hosting events for the BBC's Music Day.
Shortly after the attempt, which lasted several minutes and was watched by adjudicators from Guinness World Records, the energetic crowd of 992 children had to wait just a few minutes before being told their efforts had easily beaten the current record - 661 players.

Bamboo Tamboo is a percussion technique from the Caribbean involving players hitting hollow poles on the floor to create rhythmic beats.
It originally emerged in Trinidad, after skinned drums were banned by the British government in 1884. Originally bamboo was used, but plastic tubes are now more commonly used.
The schools, mainly from Bradford but also from Leeds, Huddersfield, and around West Yorkshire, have been practicing how to play the instrument for several weeks, and their hard work paid off today.
It was just one part of a full day of musical performances held in the city as part of the annual BBC event, which Bradford last hosted in 2015.
After Guinness World Records adjudicator Sofia Greenacre announced that Bradford had achieved the world record, cheers rang out across City Park.
This was followed by a mass dance involving over 1,200 young people.
The day had started with children with umbrellas performing "Singin In the Rain" in the City Park fountains.
A stage had been set up in the mirror pool area of City Park, and events through the day will include performances from a number of choirs and bands from local schools including the Dixons Allerton Ukes and Choir band, St Bede’s and St Joseph’s Band and the Beckfoot Oakbank Samba Band and Bradford Youth Orchestra.
Also playing are musicians Sleepy Jake and the Duvets, Lynsey Cawthra and Bradley Johnson, who appeared in the BBC musical talent show Let it Shine.
There will also be performances of Bradford - The Musical.
One of the schools that took part in the Bamboo Tamboo session was Lower Fields Primary, with 24 pupils involved in the record attempt. 
School music co-ordinator Mark Drake said pupils had been rehearsing for a month and a half, adding: "They have really enjoyed it, we've been doing a lot of practice after school and in lunch times. 
"The children are all buzzing, they've loved being part of a record attempt."
After accepting the record Tony Johnson, Bradford Council’s Head of Music and Arts said: "This says that officially we are amazing.
"It was a massive task making sure everyone was here on time and had all the practice they needed.
"What better time is there to break a record like this than on BBC Music Day? Congratulations have to go to all the schools that put in so much hard work and effort."
Miss Greenacre, who travels the world as an adjudicator for a variety of different records, said the Bamboo Tamboo event was one of the best record attempts she had witnessed, and an "amazing achievement" for the city. 
She told the Telegraph & Argus: "At Guinness we love to celebrate diversity and inclusivity. This was something everyone could get involved in, and that sums up what we are all about.
"The achievement here was the sheer number involved. Organising a group of nearly 1,000 children to all play at the same time is incredible.
"This record will make it onto our data base by the end of the week. We have over 40,000 records, and only 4,000 make the Guinness Book, but I'll push for this one to go in."
BBC Music Day is an annual, national event set up with the aim to bring people together across generations and communities through a love of music.
It started in 2015, and Bradford hosted several performances in that first year.
The Bamboo Tamboo record marked the second time City Park has witnessed a successful world record attempt in the past 12 months. 
In September the #LoveBradford effort saw over 2,300 people form the world’s longest chain of people making heart-shaped hand gestures.
