Exploring the Hokema B11 Kalimba

Exploring the Hokema B11 Kalimba

by Kalimba Magic
$16.99

This 74 page book by Mark Holdaway, is full of instructional tips and tablature for 64 songs and exercises arranged just for the Hokema B11 Kalimba. The material starts out very easy, appropriate for a beginner, but progresses to provide challenges for better players - in other words, anyone can start on this book and there is room to grow!

I find the note layout for the B11 to be particularly nice and inspiring of really neat music.

Sound files for the songs can be downloaded for free.

The Beautifull  E-Sansula book

The Beautifull E-Sansula book

by Kalimba Magic
$15.99

The Sansula in Beautiful E Tuning can be utterly magical. This book has exercises, original compositions, chords, and many well known songs. 48 pages, with 33 free MP3 downloads.

While the Sansula in standard tuning plays enchanting and mystical music, there are very few songs you can actually play on it. Also, its mood tends to be dour, even though it is enchanting and mystical. The Beautiful E Tuning was my first attempt to break out of the Sansula mind set, and it did set the Sansula free!
