The keys are fine-tuned to reflect tones playing African societies. Each key sits above a resonator with a vibrating membrane to amplify the sound and add a unique “buzz” to the music.”

In addition to covers from Rush, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath and the like, they play a few original songs, loosely focused on what their parents are currently doing to the planet.”

You can hear more of their great tracks here
