This 74-page PDF contains karimba tablature and links to MP3 and KTabS file downloads for 32 traditional African karimba songs.  The music in this collection is really outstanding, and if you have a karimba, you really should have this e-book too!  Includes material previously released as “10 Traditional African Karimba Tuned” and “11 Advanced Traditional African Tuned”, but the songs have been improved and the superior layout and direct links to the sound files makes this single PDF download a joy to work with.  Contains interesting notes on some songs, an extensive bibliography, notes on performing African karimba music, and a three page investigation of the chord progressions of karimba and mbira music and how those map into western music.

An example page from the book in included as a supplemental image for this product.


This song is among the 32 pieces in this karimba download.
