Toto is an American rock band founded in 1977 by some of the most popular and experienced session musicians of the era. The band enjoyed great commercial success in the 1980s, beginning with the band's self-titled debut released during 1978. Continuing with 1982's critically acclaimed and commercially successful Toto IV, Toto became one of the best selling music groups of their era. They are known for such hit singles as "Hold the Line," "Rosanna," "Africa" and "Stranger in Town." Although their popularity in the United States diminished in the 1990s and 2000s, they continued to tour and sell out theaters and arenas internationally.
