Mexican dancers set world record

Hundreds of dancers took to the floor simultaneously in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, to set a new Guinness World Record on Saturday.

The soundtrack to the colourful folk ball was provided by over 300 mariachis from Mexico, and countries such as Argentina and Colombia.

It was part of the 18th annual Mariachi Conference in the western state of Jalisco.
