"Afrika" in Danish & English

My latest video project. A music video for the song "Afrika" by Danish pop stars from 1985. I've added cool bubble captions which automatically translate the Danish lyrics into English as the song plays ... so you can get the meaning of this beautiful song and hear how eerily similar so much of Danish is to... English! This song is sort of the Danish version of "We Are the World," and
raised money for the Danish Red Cross in support of African famine relief. It was popular the year I lived in Denmark as an exchange student, 1985-86.
