APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

A fantastic five minutes of sound out of Africa via Slovenia.

Perpetuum Jazzile, are Slovenian and are a jazz choir. They have won the following awards: Four awards from the Vokal, an award from the Netherlands International Jazz competitions, the 2008 Choir Olympics in Austria amongst others.

Here they are performing 'Africa' and as CaptainRanty says in his blog: "Picture yourself being in a rain storm under a lot of trees and the raindrops hitting the leaves. First is the rain sound. Then the thunder. Then the choir sings. No band. One guy's voice is the drum. Choir uses hands [and feet] to simulate storm. Performed live at Vocal Extravaganza 2008, a concert spectacle of vocal jazz and popular music."

I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have. And, remember, there are no sound effects or musical  instruments, it is all hands, feet and voices for sound effects and instruments. And, the singing is in English because everyone 'seems' to speak English in Eastern Europe!
