Christmas Music on Kalimba is so beautiful, and we have books to help you play music like this The kalimba is a wonderful instrument for Christmas carols, with a peaceful and angelic sound. I have spent many joyous hours learning, practicing, and performing Christmas carols on the kalimba. More importantly, I have spent many diligent hours notating these songs for the Hugh Tracey Alto and Treble kalimbas so that you can also learn to play these carols. Every year about this time, I get my Advanced Alto and Treble Christmas books out and brush up on my carols. And each year, I add one or two tunes to my repertoire.
