I’ve mentioned before, how much I enjoy music. And my personal collection can best be described as “eclectic”. I enjoy many different genres, and love discovering new music or artists from around the world.
Last week, a post was circulating over social media. Music being played on Tesla coils. What?? I’m not a science geek, but I was intrigued. So I clicked on the link and read the article. The song being played was Toto’s “Africa”. Probably one of the most popular songs of its time, Africa has actually taken on a life of its own again in recent years. Many cover versions have been done, including my favourite acoustic version by Mike Masse (see it on Youtube). It has been played all night as a fundraiser in Malawi, a version has been done by “The Floppotron”, using 64 floppy disc drives, eight hard drives and a two scanners, and there’s more! But I’ll let you read the article to find out.
So, without any further ado, I give you on this bright Monday morning, Africa. And here is the link to just one of many internet articles about how this was accomplished. https://www.loudersound.com/news/witness-the-majesty-of-totos-classic-africa-played-on-a-pair-of-tesla-coils
