The Magadi Star-13 Kalimba is a super cool instrument. It is angelic in sound, and it is also really fun to play because of the unique note layout.
This hard copy booklet (small format, 6″ x 6″, so it fits the kalimba’s footprint) has 40 pages in four sections: Quick Start for people who already play kalimba (8 pages); Introduction for people new to the kalimba (10) pages); Easy Songs (8 pages); More Songs (9 pages).
Easy Songs include: “There’s a Hole in My Bucket”, “Oh! Susanna”, “Dvorak’s ‘Going Home’ Theme”, “Go Tell it on the Mountain”, “O Christmas Tree”. “Michael Row Your Boat Ashore”, and “You Are My Sunshine”. Plus, we share a guide for how to use the 63 songs in the free “E-Z Numbers Download” with the Star-13 Kalimba.
The ‘More Songs’ section explores the different modes that can be used on the Star-13 Kalimba in standard tuning. Also, three alternative tunings are presented, along with recordings.
