Franzoli Electronics in Brazil has an art form that combines science and music; he uses Tesla Coils to make music, and it is fascinating!


Brazil (17 June 2020) – We are starting to get the impression that Toto’s Africa is the global favourite to do covers of. Here on Good Things Guy, we have featured over 25 different stories about the song and people doing covers. We don’t blame them, it is a real goodie!

The most recent and by far, the most interesting has come from Brazil. The song was performed by two Tesla coils. Most of the song actually comes from the sparks of electricity bouncing between the coils.

Franzoli Electronics has been making music using Tesla coils for a while now but he only just popped up on our radar after Toto’s Africa. It was fascinating to watch the electrical surges and sparks.

“For those who did not understand what is going on this video, here’s a brief explanation: The main loud music really comes from the tesla coil sparks. They are literally playing the music due to the programmed phase, pulse width and firing frequency! So, there are no speakers, no audio/video special effects. It looks even better in person and sounds almost the same, just without the beat/percussion backing track. I hope you all enjoy this version where I worked for musical Tesla coils!”

Take a look at the cool rendition below.
