An "Africa" Rainstorm

My niece, Hilary, who lives in Aix-en-Provence, France, sent me this clip of “Africa” sung a capella jazz choir, Perpetuum Jazzile, from Solvenia.

The first two minutes are amazing! Group members simulate an African thunderstorm with their hands. It’s really something to see and hear. (Don’t turn up your sound – the sound of raindrops begins really soft.)

This clip is a remake from the 1982 hit “Africa” by the rock band Toto.

Perpetuum Jazzile is an a cappella jazz choir from Slovenia. And though it sounds like a full band, it’s just voices (drum, bass, etc.)
