This fun YouTube video features a 1980s pop classic. The rock band Toto scored their biggest hit with Africa in 1982. The song is instantly recognizable. But it has been reinvented.

Perpetuum Jazzile is an a cappella jazz choir from Slovenia. Itís hard to think of something further from an Ď80s rock band. But their version of Africa may best the original. The group has amazing voices.

But the beginning of this video is really striking. Group members simulate an African thunderstorm with their hands. Itís really something to see and hear.

Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder
Keeping time


Edited title & added lyrics because of Deb's astute perception.

This is very cool, crazy-fingers (and I can help but be struck by the fact that it was posted by someone with your user-name ) Thanks - music can be created through many sources!

It's too bad that the whole video wasn't the thunderstorm, that was great.

The irony hadn't even dawned on me, Deb.

Even more-so is the first verse of the song I chose the name from!

Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder
Keeping time
