If you're hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies… look no further than the African desert.

The 1982 song Africa by American rock band Toto is currently playing on loop via a sound installation in the Namib Desert.

Namibian artist Max Siedentopf intends the "ultimate" tribute to the band to play on repeat… forever.

"[I] wanted to pay the song the ultimate homage and physically exhibit 'Africa' in Africa," the artist told the BBC.

He wants "to keep Toto going for all eternity."

The Stone Henge-like installation is a striking sight against its orange desert backdrop, involving a cluster of seven white pillars whose exact location is undisclosed by the artist.
