This otamatone cover of Toto’s “Africa” is the stuff of nightmares

Posted by / December 4, 2017

The otamatone is a strange little instrument that looks like a cross between a hockey puck and a toilet plunger, and it makes an eerie, squeaky kind of music. Some musicians have taken to the otamatone, but not nearly as much for its dulcet tones as for its novelty. These musicians covered Toto’s (semi-cult) classic “Africa.” It’s far from enjoyable, but it definitely has a train-wreck quality. Once you start watching this video, it’s going to be hard to stop.

More great music.
