The Original African Mbira - The Student Karimba
Mary Had a Little Lamb?

I invite you to listen to "Mary had a Little Lamb" with some harmony - on the Student Karimba. OK, so this isn't really African music is it! But it helps you to orient yourself on the instrument, and it shows you one way this instrument can make music - with a melody on the left and harmony notes on the right.

Kalimba Magic has come out with a new book that teaches you how to play this original African mbira, which we now call the Student Karimba. Over the next several weeks, we'll show you more of what is in this new book.
