It is often said that music is the universal
language; and some say, the universal language of love. I decided that this
week I would post an amazing video that one of my Blog readers sent to me.
Remember the rock band Toto? Remember their biggest
hit everâ€”Africaâ€”in 1982? The song is instantly recognizable in countries all
over the world. And it has been reinvented!
Perpetuum Jazzile is an ‘a cappella’ jazz choir
from Slovenia. It’s hard to think of something further from an ’80s rock band
than musicians in Slovenia. But their version of Africa may best the original
version. The group has amazing voices.
The beginning of this video is really striking!
Group members simulate an African thunderstorm with their hands!! It’s really
something to see and hear. Make sure your speakers are ON.
At the beginning the sound of raindrops begins
really softly, so don’t worry about turning up the sound.
I hope you enjoy this phenomenal group!
Until next time…
only YOU can make it happen!
