Toto’s “Africa” Will Play For All Eternity in The Middle of the Namib Desert

Artist Max Siedentopf installed what he calls “Toto Forever” in the middle of the Namib Desert, an installation that, thanks to solar power, could play Toto’s Africa for all eternity.

From Max Siedentopf and BBC News:

“[I] wanted to pay the song the ultimate homage and physically exhibit ‘Africa’ in Africa,” explains the 27-year-old artist.

“Some [Namibians] love it and some say it’s probably the worst sound installation ever. I think that’s a great compliment.”

“Most parts of the installation were chosen to be as durable as possible, but I’m sure the harsh environment of the desert will devour the installation eventually.”
