El Manisero - The Peanut Vendor on the 8-Note Kalimba

This classic jazz riff is actually pretty simple to play, and this represents the high water mark of my Best Ever Book of 8-Note Kalimba Music.

Peanut Vendor

While it is important to be able to play with intentionality - i.e., to say "I'm going to play THIS EXACTLY," I think it is equally important to be able to be swept away by the magic of the kalimba, and to be able to just make it up as you go along. So, I do a little of each - give you the basic riff, but then give you ideas of all the cool things you can do, even on an 8-note kalimba.
