Talented Keyboardist Recreates All of the Many Synth Sounds Found in the Iconic Toto Song ‘Africa’

On the first episode of the second season of the Reverb Series Synth Sounds, the very talented keyboardist William Kurk broke down “the internet’s favorite song“, namely “Africa” by Toto, into its many iconic synthesizer parts. Kurk then recreated each one, using equipment similar to that available at the time.

Toto’s “Africa” is a jam that has had us blessing the rains since 1982 when the band’s album Toto IV was released. But how did Toto create those recognizable synth sounds? We’re on a safari to figure it out, led (as always) by our brave captain, William Kurk.
