Corinna Heim : The steel drums are weird. They are anything but traditionally japanese

Corey Kinard : I never would have linked steel pans with Japan. Very interesting.

klepetar : pretty good..

Dennis Sheehy Jr : Toto's Africa is a great song but how it achieved such an embedded and iconic status in the past decade is truly remarkable and will likely never be truly understood. #Toto #Africa

meltyninjers : as for the reason for the steel pan: the only percussion instruments japan has are those taiko tatsujin games in the arcades, and nobody had programmed the beat for "Africa" into one of them yet, so they needed to improvise.

Joyce Gibson : These ladies have it going on!!!! I love "Africa" and this version is very cool!!! Nice!

Gran Jaguar : I came from Reddit

CloSeph : Imagine John Pumper on vacation in Japan and walking into this

Andrés Ksnv : Thank you Japan, very cool!

Sarah Moran : Beautiful!

KhajiitHasSkooma : I upvoted for the effort, but sorry guys, this sounds like shit with these instruments. They just aren't meant for this type of music.

Binky Boppin : Am I horrible for wanting to see the front girl's instrument switched for a guitar, playing a death metal version of Africa along with those other traditional instruments? Probably, but I want to hear it.

Paul Forstall : This was pretty pretty pretty good. The musicians, the outfits, the instruments, the song, and the setting all came together perfectly

Thomas Ning : ...Sounds great, but am I the only one who doesn't recognise the song?

Kofi Concubus : Here before reddit gets to it.

Joseph Andreini : This was excellent, but as other commenters alluded to I would have preferred vocals instead of the steel drum.

turtlewings : today was shitty and I needed this, so thank you

Sentientsword : Great performance!

Andrew Turner : I hope this trio is a real band. This is a great blend of musical voices and their musicianship is impressive. They are also really beautiful, which I do not mean to minimize their talents as musicians. Also the arrangement of the song is very well done. Please be a real band that makes your own music, or even just does other arrangements.
