Amazing Choir uses hands to simulate storm

Amazing Choir uses hands to simulate storm is a Perpetuum Jazzile Youtube video of an a capella rendition of Toto's "Africa"

The intro is fantastic and inventive, the vocal performance is... okay. The song lyrics, are of course, problematic. I don't know why it's become such a standard in a capella circles, but there it is.

That was amazing! And I would not have guessed, in a million years, that the group was Slovenian.

if it hadn't been for their really lucky-to-have mic-per-person set-up, this would not have been possible. and yeah, the storm effects far outshine the vocal performance hehe. still good though.
