Recently launched ZiMarimba Fest is geared to break the current Guinness world record for the largest marimba ensemble to play together on May 25 at Prince Edward School. Endorsed by the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe, Jesuit Education Office, Zimbabwe College of Music and the Zimbabwean Tourism Authority, ZiMarimba Fest will join the rest of the nation in celebrating Africa Day through music and dance.

Over 100 schools have been invited countrywide to break the current world record of 108 marimba players held by Australia's Oxley State School.

Organised by 17-year-old multi-talented performer and Zimbabwe Championships of Performing Arts (ZiCOPA) finalist Mpiwa Gwindi, ZiMarimba Fest will perform the popular marimba song, "Manhanga" in a booming ensemble.

It's about to go down at Harare's Prince Edward School at midday where 250 students from #Zimbabwe schools will attempt to break the World Guinness Record of the biggest Marimba ensemble.
