The Meaning of 'Africa' by Toto

The Meaning of 'Africa' by Toto

Toto has been around for a long time, and while their hits 'Hold the Line' and 'Rosanna' are equally powerful anthems, the band's 1982 rock hit 'Africa' has managed to retain an immense popularity. It's cheesy, it's emotional, but most importantly its sung with total conviction and sincerity. This contrasted with a time when pop is increasingly manufactured, 'Africa' generates an appreciation for its inherent 'wholesomeness'. This coupled with catchy lyrics gives the song an enduring resonance.

Understanding Toto's Africa

Understanding Toto's Africa

Do you hear the drums echo in the night, or do you hear only whispers of some quiet conversation? Either way, we're taking a look at one of the most famous songs on the internet, Africa, by Toto. It sounds simple, but Toto was full of brilliant session musicians, and they managed to bury a lot of really clever touches in it, including possibly the most interesting piece of harmony we've looked at yet. Plus, it's got one of the most iconic riffs of all time, so that's pretty cool.

Toto were formed in LA in the late 70's by a group of friends who were all much in demand session musicians. They went on to epitomise the classic American pop/rock sound of the 80's and 90's with hit albums and singles including Hold The Line, Africa, I Won't Hold You Back and the multi-Grammy winning Rosanna. Live In Amsterdam was recorded in front of a fanatical crowd in 2003 during the world tour in support of their album "Through The Looking Glass". The set includes all their hits, tracks from that album together with live favourites. This track is from the full concert DVD "Live in Amsterdam", available now from Eagle Vision. #Toto #Africa #Vevo #Pop #Live
