Play WIth the Intention of Love

Written by Mark Holdaway, Posted in News and Announcements

Kalimba is a tool for connecting, soul to soul

Play WIth the Intention of Love

This holiday season, give the gift of kalimba music, from you to the people in your life.

Play from the heart, and play the truth and emotion and love that you have within you for those around you.

The kalimba seems to be a very simple instrument. You can control which tine you play and when you play it, and you can control the volume of each note... but it is not like a violin, a saxophone, a trumpet, a guitar, or a voice, where the musician can bend the note and exuberantly emote.

Yet, the kalimba has an expressive magic all its own. My message to you today: Use the powers of the kalimba to express and emote, with love.

EZ Numbers-Based eBook for Almost Any Kalimba

My gift to the kalimba world is kalimba tablature. It is expressive and elegant. It can display any sort of music, and it reflects my internal conceptualization of the kalimba and its music.

However, not everyone likes my vertical tablature.

If the tablature is too much for you, you might want to try the Numbers-based approach.

Soon, I am going to have a full length Numbers-based book available for sale. Until then, I offer you this short "demo version" of the book for free.

Kalimba Christmas Lyrics

Lyrics to Mark Holdaway's "Kalimba Christmas" Medley

Kalimba Christmas Lyrics

 

This is a medley of all the Christmas carols that were deeply meaningful to me as I was growing up. I first created this medley for Kalimba in 2002, and it is available on my CD "Christmas Kalimba".

 You can either read the lyrics silently as the kalimba plays, or you can sing along if you are inspired.
