Hokema - Kalimbas
Conny Sommer - The Great Textbook for Kalimba & Sansula Melody
Playing kalimba is fun! Played alone, it is a fine-sounding groove instrument that challenges the melodic-rhythmic play instinct. In the ensemble she impresses with expressive melodies, sonorous arpeggios and full-sounding chords. The kalimbas and sansulas from Hokema's 11-note Melody series combine these properties with simple, intuitive handling in an excellent way. The repertoire of this book, which is intended for both beginners and more advanced students, offers a cross-section of the world of music. 50 specially arranged themes of varying difficulty, set alone, with ensemble and/or vocals, are supplemented by chord and rhythm exercises. Stylistically, they range from African-style groove pieces to classical melodies, folk and lullabies to world-famous evergreens of popular music.
All themes are presented in sheet music and tablature. The tablature enables pitches to be localized even without knowledge of musical notation. This book is supported by linked videos and the MP3 CD, which plays almost every note printed in the book. All arrangements are available in a slow learner version and a band version that plays the piece in the original tempo. Playalongs with kalimba and band tracks invite you to practice the kalimba part to playback.
Like many other instrumentalists, the modern kalimba player also works with different tunings in order to make optimal use of the tonal range of his instrument. This book introduces ten tunings that are precisely described with detailed instructions. Usually only 1-2 tones are retuned from one chapter to the next.
