Jurij Konje's Karimba Journey

Jurij Konje

Jurij Konje purchased the Hugh Tracey African-tuned Karimba about three years ago, and he has been busy creating new music on it. Most people who create new music on their thumb pianos just create it in their heads and hearts; Jurij wrote his music out, so that he could come back to it a week, a month, or a year later, and it would still be there for him. Or better still - it is there for you and me to learn!

I am excited to announce this collaborative effort between me and Jurij - we are offering 12 of Jurij's karimba compositions as a download. Each song comes in MUSICAL STAFF notation (JPG), Jurij's original hand-written tablature (JPG - his variations are written in an elegant way), KTabS* format, KTabS produced PDF of the tablature, and an MP3 of KTabS playing. Each song has a basic part and a variation.

Jurij's songs are in an African style, with cyclical melodies and variations. Please listen to this excerpt of the song Garden, which is included in the download. Jurij's songs are simple and strong, each evoking an emotional quality or a sense of place. If you enjoyed learning the 10 Traditional African Pieces for Karimba, I think you will also like Jurij's Karimba Journey.
