Echoing one of the song’s most famous lines, it’s gonna take a lot to take away the sounds of Toto’s ‘Africa’ from the Namib Desert. Artist Max Siedentopf has set up an installation of six speakers with the 1982 hit playing on loop, assisted by solar batteries.

A map to help fans find the installation circled the entire desert as the location – actually locating it will rely on keen hearing.
