A cappella rain in Africa?

The latest a cappella YouTube sensation with 1.5 milion hits and counting is this wonderfully imaginative presentation of Toto's Africa by the Slovenian choral group Perpetuum Jazzile. The opening rain sequence is great!

I found the beginning, rain sound effects, to be remarkable and brilliant! I have a small group and we are learning the "Africa" number and I might just add a little rain at the beginning. LOL Of course I'll give Perpetuum Jazzie all the credit.
Keep singing,

Love it! Was wondering if there is a published arrangement with the rain addition? I know of only the Lawson a cappella version, which doesn't have the rain. I would like to give it a try with my HS group. Thanks,

Amazing! How do you get so many people to perform in unison? Have you been on Oprah yet?
