We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Affiance’s cover of Toto’s hit song “Africa” (listen below). You can purchase the cover song on iTunes.
Vocalist Dennis Tvrdik comments on how the cover song came about:
“About a month before we left for our South Africa tour in 2014, Patrick and I were at a bar and Toto’s ‘Africa’ came on. I had joked that we should cover the song since we did a cover of ‘The Final Countdown’ by Europe, thinking it was clever to keep the whole continent thing going [laughs]. But what if we actually recorded it in South Africa? The rest is history. We recorded and mostly wrote ‘Africa’ while in Africa at Audio Militia in Johannesburg. Well, if that wasn’t on my bucket list, it sure is now! This is a reminder of one of the most personally impacting and life changing tours/experiences to date.”
