Rain (performance)

I sent this wideo to some of my Opera friends by mail and then Pam asked me why not to put it in blog. I have found it, eventually, in You Tube (where else ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and here it is.


I couldn`t find more about performers so if anyone knows anything about them I will appreciate and probably update a post with some info ๐Ÿ˜€

Enjoy :yes:

I`ve changed the video ๐Ÿ˜€
Thanks to Pam I have found complete video of their 2008. performance. The band is Slovenian jazz and popular music choir, Perpetuum Jazzile, founded in 1983. It is their cover of a famous oldie "Africa" made by Toto, American rock band from 70s. The original song was included on their 1982. album Toto IV, and scored number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1983 and number three on the UK Singles Chart the same month.

    I love this Darko! If I close my eyes, it sounds perfectly like rain. It's hard to believe it's all done with hands and feet! I'm going to put this in my favorites so I can listen to it when there's been weeks and weeks of no rain here. I listened to a few of the related videos then came across the name Perpetuum Jazzile. Then, of course, looked on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetuum_Jazzile. This particular song, er….I guess you can call it a song, is called Africa. So cool.

    ๐Ÿ˜† We used to do that in music class at school! Seriously, exactly like that…so I claim it as a Canadian folk song!

    Pam, that is amazing, I have found entire video and now I will replace it in my post. They were covering a song made by Toto "Africa" without using any instruments. Thanks a lot.Carol, I hope you liked it :DSan, they are from Slovenia ๐Ÿ˜› Is Canada a part of Slovenia too? ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. PainterWoman says:

    A fabulous song! I used to have the LP record of Toto and listened to it all the time just to hear this song. I don't know what ever happened to the record so I'll have to get the CD if it is available. I'm going to look for Perpetuum Jazzile too!

  30. L2D2 says:

    Dare, Belgrade is a suburb of Houston. ๐Ÿ˜† I don't remember who sent it to me. Think it was my friend backbreakinboobs.

  31. SqueakeyCat says:

    Darko, for your phone visitors, there is a site called vuclip.comwhat i did to watch your video is, i took the "yjbpwlqp5Qw" part of your link and did a search on vuclip for the video. it pulled it right up, and i was able to watch the whole thing.they did an excellent job with that song with no instruments. and it did actually sound like rain.if you weren't watching the video, you would never know that they were using their hands, feet, and mouths for the instrument sounds.

  32. gdare says:

    :lol:I am born and live in Zemun and we use to say that Zemun is a capital of Belgrade :lol:We are very proud of our town even though it is connected to Belgrade :happy:

  37. edwardpiercy says:

    The redhead in the yellow dress, definitely. Althought the curly-haired dark brunette with the glasses is nice too.Oh, yeah…the song…I think those tenor finger-snappers were slightly off key. :pOkay, enough. I remember that song on the radios and juke boxes when it first came out. I always liked it. I hadn't seen or heard of the video, so thanks for posting. :up:

  38. gdare says:

    Yes, and there is one in a second row, short hair, cute smile ๐Ÿ˜€ :heart:

  39. gdare says:

    ๐Ÿ˜Ž :whistle:

  40. L2D2 says:

    Well, I saw the one in glasses, and couldn't miss the one in yellow dress, but never was sure which one you were eyeing Dare. Ya'll have studied enough geometry today. School's out. ๐Ÿ˜€

  41. gdare says:

    Noooo, no, no, no. Geometry is my favourite :whistle::devil:

  42. PainterWoman says:

    Well, I liked the main singer. A little young for me but he was cute. So there! :p ๐Ÿ˜†

  43. gdare says:

  44. Minenow says:

  45. gdare says:


  46. Minenow says:

    Of course. I always keep a promise if at all possible. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  47. L2D2 says:

    You need to quit checking out ALL the female geometry with your eyes, and start feeling some of it up close and personal Dare. How's that for a geometry lesson? :p ๐Ÿ˜†
